Description

This book provides everything beginning artists need to know to get started: highly practical instruction in the fundamentals of drawing, painting in watercolour and oil, and composition and perspective, through to the more advanced techniques. The book is divided into four sections written by experts in each particular field. The first three sections, "Starting Drawing", "Starting in Watercolour", "Starting in Oils" give the aspiring artist a complete and thorough grounding in all aspects of the media materials and techniques. The final section, "Composition and Perspective" demonstrates and teaches the art of using different perspectives, shadowing, movement, symmetry and tone. With over 450 colour illustrations, this book is brimming with dozens of clearly illustrated exercises and step-by-step projects designed to encourage readers to build skills and develop the kind of artistic confidence that comes only through practice. Ken Howard is an associate of the Royal Academy and a member of the Royal Watercolour Society.show more
