Drawing & Painting : Materials and Techniques for Contemporary Artists Hardback
Bursting with practical techniques, engaging artist profiles and inspirational galleries, Drawing & Painting combines an authoritative 'category killer' approach with a contemporary aesthetic guaranteed to appeal to all artists.
The 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 & 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.
