'Collins Artist's Guide to Making Pictures' is a comprehensive yet intimate interpretation of the process involved in creating paintings and drawings. The composition, tonal values and colour balance of a picture can be compared to the foundations of a building – without a solid framework the whole thing could collapse!
Contents include advice on choosing suitable subjects and how to make an exciting and dynamic composition, be it a figure study, landscape or still life. There are invaluable tips on using colour and tone, plus informative charts on selecting and mixing colours.
The fascinating and endless opportunities for successful picture making are demonstrated through a wide range of subjects, themes, materials and techniques selected from the portfolios of practising artists.About the Author:
