This comprehensive book offers a complete guide to all the materials, techniques and approaches an artist needs to get started. As well as step-by-step instruction for beginners it offers expert tips, advice and ideas to offer inspiration to more advanced practitioners.
Divided into four parts, this book covers all the most popular art mediums: drawing; watercolour; oil and acrylic; and pastel. Each section describes the range of materials and equipment available, and reveals how to get the best out of them. It shows clearly how to do the setting up and preparation, and takes the reader through all the first techniques.
There are over 30 detailed step-by-step projects each designed to teach a specific skill in depth. More specialized methods are then explained, for increasingly advanced and sophisticated effects.
Throughout, lively and inspirational works by contemporary artists illustrate the skills in action, and provide a constant source of inspiration. Special 'focus' features are included on painting and drawing popular subjects such as portraits and figures, landscapes, buildings and flowers.
At-a-glance photographs, clear instructions and examples (with over 900 images in total) ensure that the book is both a visual delight and foolproof to follow. With tried-and-tested techniques and expert guidance, this book provides an invaluable practical reference for every amateur artist.
