Creative Techniques Series - All books in this series
Titles in the Creative Techniques art instruction series speak especially to students and experienced amateurs who want to improve their repertory of techniques in various art media. Oil presents 14 distinctive, strikingly different approaches to oil painting, encouraging students to assess highly individual techniques pioneered by renowned past artists as sources of inspiration for their own work. Illustrations of representative oil paintings in each of the 14 approaches—by distinguished artists as different from each other as Paul Cézanne, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, and Georgia O’Keeffe—are analyzed and explained with instruction that will guide students toward achieving the demonstrated effects. In seeing and understanding different approaches, students are inspired to advance their own skills beyond simple copying and develop imaginative new modes of personal expression. Color illustrations on every page.
