Many professional painters and graphic artists use photographs for their work as a matter of course, but the practice has never been properly presented and explained to the amateur painter. Master painters such as Degas, Delacroix, Manet and, more recently Munch, Nash and Hockney, all used photography in their work. This practical book lets the amateur painter in on the tricks and techniques the professionals use, and shows how to make the most of this very useful tool in the creative process.
