The text is complemented by a gallery of contemporary work paying particular attention to differing approaches. In addition, there are practical step-by-step demonstrations showing the methods used to achieve varied and outstanding results. From pastel to watercolour and oil to acrylic, they reveal how the different media can be used to create stunning visual effects.
