A 144-page hardcover book by Bob Rohm.
Create paintings with feeling
The Painterly Approach bridges the gap between what you see as an artist, and what you feel. More than painting an appealing landscape, it’s about making your viewer feel the wind, experience the dance of shadows and sunlight, and admire the wondrous intermingling of colors that attracted you to your subject in the first place.
In this gorgeously illustrated book, Bob Rohm shows you how to see the world from a painterly perspective and translate it into expressive, poetic paintings that elicit an emotional response from your viewer.
- Clearly illustrates how to choreograph color, value, composition, texture and other fundamental elements to achieve those elusive qualities of mood and emotion
- Features 9 step-by-step demonstrations (in oil, pastel and acrylic) on capturing a vivid sense of time and place
- Covers brushstrokes, painting with a palette knife, edge control, shadows and other advanced art techniques.
