Bursting with practical techniques, engaging artist profiles and inspirational galleries, 'Drawing and Painting' combines an authoritative approach with a contemporary aesthetic guaranteed to appeal to all artists.
The book’s up-to-date approach is a far cry from the dry instructions and dated artwork that feature in more traditional art books. In contrast to other, project-orientated titles, 'Drawing and Painting' places the emphasis on the techniques themselves, encompassing drawing, sketching and a range of painting styles.
From pen and ink to oils and acrylics, specially commissioned photography and artwork accompanies step-bystep techniques, while profiles of contemporary artists provide insight into various working methods, materials and techniques.
Acknowledging the growing interest in digital tools as a medium, information is provided throughout the book on how effects can be created using Smart Pens, tablets and apps.
