Welcome to art school!
This is not your typical step-by-step painting book-it is a
comprehensive, foolproof guide to beginning a successful journey in
painting. Accomplished artist Vanessa Rothe guides you through the
fundamental framework of art and technique while demonstrating how
to paint in simple, approachable steps. You'll feel as though you
have your own art tutor as you follow lessons similar to those
offered in an entrylevel college art course. Topics include
composition, perspective, form, value, paint mixing, color harmony,
and-most important-how these concepts relate specifically to
painting dynamic still lifes and florals.
Each lesson builds on the previous to help you gain confidence
and learn at a pace that encourages a thorough understanding of the
content. Featuring quotes from famous artists, section reviews,
loads of professional tips, and even a French twist, this book
inspires as much as it teaches!
