This successful book, first published in hardback in 1995, is now being reissued in paperback. It is the first practical book on this subject to reveal the tricks and techniques used by professional painters.
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. This book, however, shows how to make the most of this very useful tool in the creative process.
The book covers:
Basic photographic techniques for the artist
• Methods for transferring a photographic image to paper or canvas
• Interpreting the photographic image in an original and creative way
• Practical projects and step-by-step demonstrations on varied subject matter in different media
• Many examples by different artists, showing how they use photographs in their work
