With this dynamic new method, Diane Edison gets the painting beginner to use the full range of colours on the palette from the very first lesson. Starting with a detailed discussion of the colour wheel and continuing with a broad exploration of design principles, the author then demonstrates painting techniques using oils and acrylics. In a clear step-by-step approach, she explains how to prepare a canvas, or wood panel, before looking at the techniques of wet-on-wet (or alla prima) painting, wet onto dry painting, scumbling and a variation on the grisaille technique. Using different methods, students also learn how to compose still life, portrait, landscape and abstract paintings. Tips on how to use a range of tools and materials are featured throughout the text. A commentary on techniques used by fine artists, and particularly by a wide range of contemporary artists, illuminates the practical discussion.
