Everything budding artists need to know to paint or draw confidently in their own style is in this essential and inspirational A-Z reference, filled with 600 full-color illustrations. From cave paintings to Picasso, technical drawings to cartoons, here is the history of these two art forms, with stunning examples of work by famous masters and practicing professionals. Experienced, respected tutors pass on their practical know-how and technical skills-illustrated in detail-including what tools and equipment to buy and the fundamentals of working in watercolor, oils, and acrylics. Beginners are gently guided through the basics of shape, light, composition, color theory, and perspective; more accomplished artists tackle advanced techniques.
