One of the most common problems many amateur artists face is not knowing what to paint. In this inspirational book Hazel Soan explains how to recognize a good subject and draws attention to the enormous number of painting possibilities in everyday life, at work, at home, while travelling and on holiday.
‘What shall I paint?' might seem a strange question to ask when there are around us so many obvious subjects to paint. But painters sometimes become aware that their choice of subject does not always readily make a good painting. This book reveals why something makes a good subject and what to look for in your surroundings.
Hazel Soan believes that painting starts with seeing, and in this book she shows readers how to develop their observational skills and become more aware of the elements that make up a good picture, enabling them to discover and recognize painting subjects all around them, often in the least obvious places.
With a combination of practical instruction and a number of illustrated projects and step-by-step demonstrations in watercolour, oils and acrylics, What Shall I Paint? will ensure that artists need never be at a loss for inspiration, or think any subject inappropriate or uninteresting to paint.
