Art School: A Complete Painter's Course

by Sterling

It's like going to art school...but in your own home! With more than 400 information-packed pages of basic techniques for watercolors, oils, and acrylics, plus carefully graded projects and over 1000 specially commissioned pictures, this colorful, oversized painter's course will turn you into a complete and versatile artist. Overcome the challenges posed by watercolors, starting with projects that use only a single color and progressing to wet-on-wet washes and ambitious figures and landscapes. Achieve professional results with oils, the supreme painting medium: choose suitable subjects, arrange attention-grabbing compositions, and make the most of oil paints' rich texture. The flexibility of acrylics makes them especially attractive to beginners, who appreciate the way they simplify the painting process. From selecting equipment to finding guidance on a large-scale painting, this oversize manual is the perfect. Paperback book measures 8 1/2 in. x 11 1/2 in., 42 pages all in color. Hamlyn, 2005. ISBN 0600614131

The best all around book on art and techniques that i have ever read. It is a gold mine of ideas and knowledge
Rated by: Christine H. in Aberdeen, WA
I bought this book because of the value of information I thought it would have in it's 400+ pages, and I wasn't disappointed. This truly had a wealth of information on painting with oils, watercolors, and acrylics. It not only talked about materials, it discussed materials in all three mediums. It went into depth about technique and even had step by step demonstrations. This really was a book containing three complete books within. My only wish was that it held more realistic demonstrations. It has some though. Even if you only do realism this book is worth the cost and a great addition!
