Somewhere along the route to learning, all aspiring artists want to make a statement through their first complete painting--and this volume provides the knowledge and skills required to produce a finished piece. Comprehensive, start-to-finish demonstrations in the form of "Artstrips" show the steps toward a successful painting and detail the tips and techniques required to produce works with depth and clarity. Subjects include still-life compositions, landscape elements and whole compositions, flower and figurative studies, and an introduction to the human form in a composition. Through these workshops, beginners will move forward and those who already paint will gain additional insight into other possibilities.
