A word from the features editor! Review by Sarah Strickley

As features editor of the magazine I'm eager to tell you a little about what you'll find inside our August issue. I think our readers will be especially thrilled to find our massive Weather Report feature that will show you how several well-known pastelists capture fair and foul weather patterns in pastel. And I'm thrilled to introduce you to German artist Astrid Volquardsen whose pastel seascapes will knock your socks off. Happy reading!
