The Search Press Guide to Painting Techniques (Search Press Guides)
This is an updated version of the 1986 book Encyclopaedia of Painting Techniques. There has been so much progress in the world of panting mediums in the last decade that it was time this book - ground-breaking and a "first" at the time - was updated. From how to stretch paper and prepare canvasses to the best way to begin a painting - whether oil, watercolour , acrylic or pastels its all here. If you want to experiment but are unsure what to do, or are a beginner wondering where to start just flip open this book at your chosen media and enjoy, most major painting techniques are included accompanied by lots of reference materials. Elizabeth and Hazel explain how to "build up" paintings, how to lay different washes and fun things like dropping in colour. They cover different ways of working such as knife painting, impasto, glazing and even finger painting. Trying different styles lets you find out what you enjoy and are best at rather than limiting yourself to one traditional approach - its all part of the art journey. Along with different ways of working they cover many different techniques used - some well known and some less used but very useful tool box additions to an artists repertoire such as wet brushing pastel - that's something I've never tried or thought of -and I'm always open for something new. To finish the book has a larger section on themes - landscapes, portraits, water, skies etc accompanied by step by step demonstrations and plentiful illustrations offering specific techniques for different subjects. If you love to play and experiment or if you're just starting and wondering what to do first this book will enthrall you as its full of little tips and bits for lots of different media. Its a brilliant reference book for any artist studio.-JeannieZelos.com Although this isn't actually a new book, it looks like it and the editors have done a good job on updating what was already an excellent idea that has stood the test of time well. The book is organised into a logical sequence that begins with a section on Preparing To Paint, which deals with preparing canvases, stretching paper, priming and so on. The layout here shows us how the book is going to progress, with each section given a double-page spread with plenty of pictures and simple, short captions that explain what you're looking at. From here, you get Making A Start, Ways Of Working, Special Techniques and then Themes, which is a rather neat way of working from a technique-based approach to something more practical, where you look at techniques in action in portraits, landscapes, waterscapes and so on. A lot of people will tell you that painting isn't, or shouldn't be, about the technical stuff but rather about expressing your creativity and that's fine as far as it goes. However, you still need to know how to mix colour, use resists, drybrush, glazing and all that in order to be able to get the effects you want. If you went on a course, this is what they'd teach you but, if you're working on your own, you need something to help and this mixture of the encyclopaedia (the book grows out of the encyclopaedia series) and the practical guide will give you a lot of help all in one place. This was a good book when it first appeared and it's a measure of its fundamental quality that it still is.-Artbookreview.net This book undoubtedly has a place on every artist's bookshelf. It is an indispensable guide, almost an encyclopedia, into painting techniques. No matter what your question you are likely to find the answer within these pages. Over 40 different painting and paint preparation techniques are covered in detail from variegated washes and scrumbling to coloured grounds. If you want to find out how to do a particular technique, or just simply refresh your memory - this is where to find it. There are step by step demonstrations explaining how to achieve an effect, easy to follow instructions for using acrylics, watercolours, oils and pastels. An interesting section deals with how to achieve specific effects such as sunshine or rain, water and cloth. No matter what your style be it realistic, or impressionistic, this book is a valuable aid to developing your skills.-Monstersandcritics.com
