Description

Bursting with practical techniques, engaging artist profiles and inspirational galleries, Drawing and Painting combines an authoritative ‘category killer’ approach with a contemporary aesthetic guaranteed to appeal to all artists. Published by Thames and Hudson This book’s up-to-date approach is a far cry from the dry instructions and dated artwork that feature in more traditional art books. In contrast to other, largely project-orientated titles, Drawing and Painting places the emphasis on the techniques themselves, encompassing drawing, sketching and a range of painting styles. Covering everything from pen and ink to oils and acrylics, specially commissioned photography and artwork accompanies step-by-step techniques, while profiles of contemporary artists provide insight into various working methods, materials and techniques. Acknowledging the growing interest in digital tools as a medium, information is provided throughout the book on how effects can be created using Smart Pens, tablets and apps.
