Publisher Comments:

Creating a piece of artwork that might be mistaken for a photograph is the goal of many aspiring artists. With this 32-page guide, even beginners can learn methods for painting with amazing realism and accuracy. Accomplished artist Daniel Tennant explains the basics of using gouache and airbrushing and provides in-depth information on essential techniques such as gradating, using stencils, and creating a metallic effect. He also offers instruction on common elements of traditional still lifes, guiding readers from applying the initial layer of color through adding texture to detailing with shadows and highlights. The book also features several inspiring projects, each broken down into numerous, digestible steps so artists can easily follow along.
