Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The first two titles in the new "Basic Techniques" series from North Light Books, these books are part of a trend by art instruction publishers to compile previously published works into larger, more definitive texts. Material for these books came from earlier North Light books and from The Artist's Magazine. Basic Flower Painting includes the work of 24 painters in more than 20 step-by-step demonstrations. More than the sum of its parts, it is a sophisticated, comprehensive treatment. Basic People Painting takes advantage of the styles and ideas of 11 watercolorists for a book that is visually rich and highly useful. For portrait painting in other media, see Roberta Carter Clark's How To Paint Living Portraits (North Light, 1990).
