This is the definitive artist's reference source book on art materials and painting techniques with more than 1300 colour illustrations.
Collins Complete Artist's Manual covers all the painting and drawing materials available to the artist today and also conveys the sheer joy and excitement of creating art.
In addition, it contains a structured painting course from simple exercises to more advanced projects, with demonstrations by well-known practising artists who share their successes (and setbacks) with the reader.
Contents include comprehensive information on drawing and painting media along with hints and tips on how to set up your own artist's studio. The book contains advice on making the most of colour, composition and drawing and sketching techniques in your work. There are even suggestions on what to paint and draw in order to get you started on that art project that is just waiting to happen.
Collins Complete Artist's Manual is visually rich and exciting, practical and comprehensive, and no artist's studio should be without it.
