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!
