Overview

Packed with need-to-know information, this comprehensive handbook should be every painter's companion in the studio. Chapters focus on essentials: colours required for a basic palette; preparing a support; which are the most vibrant and permanent pigments etc., while describing how materials and techniques have developed over the centuries and how to apply them for the best results.

The emphasis on practical advice will appeal to artists who like to explore and experiment, are economically minded, or simply find satisfaction in doing it all themselves. The author includes recipes for making glazes, acrylic ground, gesso and pastel sticks; information on photographing and archiving work yourself; a guide to setting up a studio; and the results of the author's own extensive testing of materials from paints to papers.

The Painter's Studio Handbook is a complete resource for all artists working in oils, acrylics, watercolour, pastel, chalk or ink.
