About the Author:

Simon Jennings has conceived, designed, and produced numerous art and design books. He lives in the United Kingdom.

From Booklist:

Comprehensive and substantial, Jennings’ single-volume, updated packaging of his The Artist’s Manual (2003) and The New Artist’s Manual (2005) begins with a quote from Renoir, who referred to painting as a “manual skill.” Consequently, Jennings posits painting as craft as well as art and emphasizes that artists need to understand materials and techniques in order to avoid pitfalls and increase the pleasures of both making art and art’s aesthetics. The curriculum provided by this visiting lecturer at the Royal College of Art in London is divided into 10 sections, from “Supports” (canvas, paper, boards, and panels and their preparation), advancing to “Painting Media” (oil paints and sticks, brushes and knives, watercolors and acrylics) and “Color & Composition,” which includes color’s “language.” With 1,300 full-color photographs, illustrations, and examples of artists’ work, plus a glossary, index, and listing of suppliers, this practical text is accessible to artists of all skill levels, which should generate mainstream demand. --Whitney Scott
