A practical and authoritative guide to the latest materials, hottest trends, and best techniques for creating stunning artwork, The Artist’s Handbook is packed with easy-to-follow tutorials, engaging artist profiles, and inspirational galleries.

Unleash your creativity with The Artist’s Handbook —a practical, essential handbook that will teach you every step of the artistic process. Unlike other project-oriented art guides, The Artist’s Handbook emphasizes technique, encompassing drawing and sketching as well as an extensive range of painting styles.

Covering everything from pen and ink to oils and acrylics, specially commissioned illustrations accompany detailed step-by-step tutorials, while profiles of contemporary artists offer insight into a range of working methods, materials, and techniques. Helpful sidebars provide information about using digital tools such as Smart Pens, tablets, and apps to create and enhance artwork.

Kate Wilson begins with a thorough exploration of the elements of drawing and painting. Each chapter includes an informative overview, followed by an exploration of the tools and materials relevant to the particular medium, and detailed instruction and guidance for using different techniques. She then introduces you to a range of approaches using four core subjects: the human body, the environment, still life, and non-figurative. She also highlights young, emerging artists from all corners of the globe, offering examples of how they are using methods and materials in innovative ways.

If you want to put pen to paper or brush to canvas, are looking to hone your skills, or want to know more about the elements of the artistic process, The Artist’s Handbook is the only guide you need.

From the Back Cover:

The Artist’s Everything Handbook is your complete guide to the fundamentals of artistic creation. Encompassing a diverse range of drawing, sketching, and painting techniques—from pen and ink to oils and acrylics—you’ll find everything you need to create daring and imaginative works of art.

Divided according to medium, each section offers an informative overview and a thorough exploration of all the relevant tools and materials. Chapters suggest innovative ways to tackle your subjects, and provide specially commissioned illustrations with detailed tutorials and helpful tips. Learn how to properly mix paint colors, take a small object and scale it up, and play with the idea of positive and negative space. Inside, you’ll also find galleries of contemporary artwork that demonstrate the range of effects that can be achieved using a particular technique. Acknowledging the growing interest in digital media, this book also includes information on how certain effects can be re-created using programs such as Photoshop and drawing apps. And finally, artist profiles offer insight into the working processes of some of today’s emerging painters and drawers from all around the world.

Filled with imaginative ideas and tutorials, varied and inspiring work from young contemporary artists, and a fresh, modern approach to old art forms, this book is your essential reference to dive into the boundless possibilities of drawing and painting.
