Book Description

April 1994 The Dk Art School
Unlike most other how-to art books, the precise focus of this series's tuition benefits both the beginner and those with more experience. Each book takes the aspiring artist through a series of projects based on a specific medium or a favourite subject of their choice. This book focuses on oil painting, specifically portrait painting, taking readers through all the steps in creating a successful portrait, from brushes and supports, transferring an image, and getting a likeness, to a self portrait study, a group portrait and finally a gallery of modern examples.
--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

By M. murdock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
good little book to pour over longingly and wallow in the joy that is art making.
Though not the greatest,
its a good basic start
and for the old dog painters like me ...
its a bit of a refresher for all that stuff you forgot, or down right didn't bother to listen to from college.
