Synopsis

The one-stop handbook of everything you need to know to get the most out of your passion for art

This book delivers what you need to become a more confident, creative artist - whatever your level of skill or experience. It's like having your very own studio assistant. Designed for modern artists who take inspiration from and make connections between different art traditions and techniques, The Artist's Manual covers drawing and painting; ceramics, sculpture, and printmaking; as well as newer areas such as digital art and animation.



Brush up on basic know-how such as choosing the right tool, mixing watercolors, preparing a canvas, or mastering image-manipulation software. Learn how to glaze a pot, screenprint in halftones, or use perspective to bring drawings to life. Try mosaic, fresco, linocut, digital collage, and much more. Equipment, materials, and methods are fully explained and beautifully illustrated - there's everything you need to enjoy making art to the fullest and take your creativity to the next level.
