Publisher Comments:

This is a unique, how-to art instruction book, taught by masterful artist Dan Carrel. Using Dan’s original method of painting, readers with little or no painting experience will easily learn to create realistic renderings of any subject. Through a simple process of layering and learning how to create light and shadow with paint, a complex and sophisticated image emerges. What begins as chaotic color is transformed into an orderly, realistic finished piece of art. Dan Carrel has been teaching workshops for over 30 years with amazing results. No matter what your artistic inclination, and even if you have never picked up a paintbrush, you’ll find yourself painting beyond your wildest expectations. Anchored in a positive philosophy of creative discovery, this workshop teaches Dan’s no-fail techniques through accessible, step-by-step visual instruction and inspiration.

About the Author

Dan Carrel is a masterful artist who has been teaching art for over 35 years. Although he has taught at five universities and colleges, much of his experience and passion focuses on helping the non-traditional students to learn or relearn to access the mental functions associated with art. What motivates him is a deeply held conviction that artistic expression is the birthright of every living soul and it’s his mission to help you access that divine right. Dan shows students how to create the underlying painting structure of color chaos, which allows the student to see and discover the basic visual patterns that are needed to complete a realistic painting. Even if you have never picked up a paintbrush you’ll find yourself painting beyond your wildest expectations.
