Titles in the Creative Painting art instruction series are prepared especially for students and experienced amateurs who are looking to improve their technique, develop their own distinctive style, and produce highly finished, professional quality artworks. The books can be used with profit as self-teaching guides or as textbooks in art classes. This book instructs students in the mastery of line, using several different media and showing various ways in which line art is employed to render still lifes, landscapes, portraits, and human forms. Using fifteen examples, the authors demonstrate the step-by-step development of paintings and drawings, allowing students to compare different techniques and then develop those which best suit their own styles and purposes. Included among the attractive color illustrations throughout this book are many reproductions of works by famous artists.
