Details: Product Description In this collection of techniques and tutorials, all aimed at the novice artist, the reader can explore the many different avenues of creative art available. From the relaxing and enjoyable pastime of drawing, to the versatile, vibrant medium of oil painting, each discipline is clearly explained through a series of tutorials that build in complexity. In addition to the tutorials, there is advice on tools, materials and techniques, plus plenty of tips throughout. Review “Written by experienced artists and teachers, Painting & Drawing is the ideal starting place for anyone who wants to learn to draw and paint, but who is unsure of which direction they want to go in. Each of the main media is covered, from drawing, watercolour and oils, to coloured pencils, charcoal and acrylics. The instruction is delivered in the form of tutorials, aimed at the complete novice, and each medium is taught by a professional in the field – including Paul Clark (professional illustrator and watercolour artist), Adrian Burrows (art teacher and acrylic artist), Norman Long (art teacher and oil painter), Kendra Ferreira (art teacher and coloured pencil artist) and Richard Rochester (drawing lecturer and charcoal drawing artist). The book includes clear information on materials and techniques including perspective, tonal values, composition, colour and tone.” ― Leisure Painter magazine "It’s a bind-up of five of GMC’s rather excellent guides that go into considerably more detail than such things often do. If you want an overview, or to explore beyond your current comfort zone, $29.95 really isn’t a lot to pay for the amount of detail and quality of instruction and reproduction you’ll find here. Or, if you’re looking for a top-class introduction for a friend, make a bee-line for this.” ― The Artist Magazine “Thoroughly 'user friendly' in community, organization and presentation, "Painting & Drawing: Techniques and Tutorials for the Complete Beginner" is an ideal curriculum textbook selection for school beginner level art classes, as well as unreservedly recommended for personal and community DIY art instruction collections.” ― Mid-West Book Review About the Author Guild of Master Craftsmen (GMC) Publications publishes books which are valued by professional craftsmen and women and enjoyed by keen amateurs alike.
