VOYAUsing examples from such artists as Vincent Van Gogh, Henri Matisse, and Paul Cezanne, each volume in this series focuses on painting or drawing in a specific style or genre. Theory flows directly into application so that effects may be understood and then replicated. Light and Color focuses on general principles such as light sources and color wheels and then becomes more detailed, offering suggestions for different media, such as pastels, charcoals, inks, and oils, and various subjects, including landscapes, figure drawing, and still life. Illustrated step-by-step exercises encourage artists to apply the techniques that are discussed. Sidebars list advanced techniques, trouble-shooting advice, and the principles that each exercise illustrates. Although directed toward intermediate to advanced artists, this series would be appropriate for more advanced beginners looking to broaden their knowledge and refine technique. Filled with beautiful illustrations and detailed text, this series will inspire any artist. (The Painter's Corner).
