9780007151486: The Indoor Artist

The Indoor Artist is an ideal guide for all those who, for whatever reason, prefer to paint at home. Packed with original ideas and practical projects, as well as expert advice on techniques, this is an inspiring book for beginners and experienced artists alike.

For many people, indoors is the best location in which to paint – convenient, undemanding, safe, not subject to the weather and free from curious onlookers. But inspiration can sometimes run dry and the amateur artist may also need some instruction to help gain essential skills.

The Indoor Artist is a practical resource for such painters. Professional artist and writer Linda Birch takes the reader through the basics – establishing a simple home studio area, selecting the right medium and getting to grips with shape and form – before looking at a number of enjoyable projects in watercolour.

These include:
• working from photographs
• painting still lifes
• creating the outdoors indoors
• painting from your window – skies and roofscapes
• painting flowers, gardens, people and animals

She also encourages the reader to explore their experimental side by varying scale, using colour creatively and adopting a number of different styles.

An ideal introduction for the beginner and a source of inspiration for the more advanced artist, The Indoor Artist is an essential resource for those who paint at home.
