All About Techniques Series - All books in this series
Ambitious art students, teachers, and hobbyists seeking more comprehensive instruction manuals than "Barron's Art Guides", will find what they're looking for in this substantial book. After covering much of the same material contained in the easier "Art Guides", the "All About Techniques" book illustrates and explains the fundamentals of art theory, then proceeds to step-by-step advice on how to create complete, highly finished artworks. All volumes are filled with full-color photos and art illustrations, the latter in some cases showing reproductions of well-known paintings. Emphasizing paints, materials, brushwork technique, color theory, and the various kinds of paper available to watercolor artists, this volume offers a comprehensive art course, starting with basics, including "tricks of the trade", and ending with instruction on creating highly professional watercolors of a wide variety of different subjects.
