Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The DK Art School series provides all the fundamental techniques both adult and juvenile artists need. At the heart of each book are twelve projects that explore the methods of the great masters. Each specially commissioned painting is broken down in step-by-step color photos that show every stage of its creation. Lists of materials, subjects, and techniques complete each volume. 300 color photos.

Synopsis:

Most art instruction books are much too general for the beginner. But every volume of The DK Art School gives the reader the precise information needed to create a delightful work of art.

Within 72 pages this book manages to provide simple but sufficient practical instructions for creating several types of acrylic works -- after providing a 37 page discussion of: materials, composition, and colour theory that is!
The projects are varied but not too challenging for beginners.
