Beginner Art Guides - All books in this series
“Beginner Art Guides” instruct in the fundamentals of art, then present a series of projects for the student to master. Projects are presented in order of difficulty, and are supplemented with practical suggestions, ideas for color experiments, and techniques for creating special effects. The final page of each book presents a capsule biography of a famous artist whose work offers classic examples of the title’s central subject. This volume summarizes basic art principles for art students and ambitious amateurs, and then presents several dry-medium projects for them to complete. This title presents a brief, enlightening illustrated discussion of James Ensor (1860–1949), a Belgian artist particularly noted for his work in charcoal, chalk, and sanguine.
