The projects in this book are taken from some of the most popular drawing books in Walter Foster's How to Draw and Paint Series. And because all the successful artists featured in this book have developed their own special approach to drawing, there are countless lessons to be...

Being in love with the art of Matte Painting, I collected these tutorials over one year from numerous onlineresources and eventually compiled them into this document. Originally intended for personal use only, I thought that maybe some people out there might be interested too, so I deceided to relase them to the public. No big thing, and defenitely nothing new – I just gathered these tutorials to have them all in one place. And if any – or all – of these tutorials happen to be new to you – even better! A great thanks goes out to all...

The earliest form of painting was with colours ground in water. Egyptian artists three thousand years B.C. used this method, and various mediums, such as wax and mastic, were added as a fixative. It was what is now known as tempera painting. The Greeks acquired their knowledge of the art from the Egyptians, and later the Romans dispersed it throughout Europe. They probably introduced tempera painting into this country for decoration of the walls of their houses.
He long obscurity of the Dark Ages lifted over Italy, awakening to a national though a divided consciousness. Already two distinct tendencies were apparent. The practical and rational, on the one hand, was soon to be outwardly reflected in the burgher-life of Florence and the Lombard cities, while at Rome it had even then created the civil organization of the curia. The novella was its literary triumph. In art it expressed itself simply, directly and with vigour.
Many thanks to Shahin for this amazing tutorial.
I paint digitally as if I use traditional tools. First I use a sketch tool in Painter program (mainly charcoal and chalk or pen and ink), and block in the tones and create a monochrome drawing then I used it as a base for my painting. Next step I create new layers and build up color tones. For Digital painting you need hardware facilities and related softwares.
In speaking of art we often contrast the useful or mechanical arts with the Fine Arts; by these terms we denote
the difference between the arts which are used in making such things as are necessary and useful in civilized
life, and the arts by which ornamental and beautiful things are made.
The fine arts are Architecture, Sculpture, Painting, Poetry, and Music, and though we could live if none of
these existed, yet life would be far from the pleasant experience that it is often made to be through the
enjoyment of these arts....

Step 1 The first step is to loosely draw the basic shapes. The idea is not to carefully
.draw every detail then fill it in, but to get a rough guideline for the major shapes. Don't worry about accurate details, but concentrate on accurate proportions. (HB lead pencil)
A Great Sketch Results in a Great Painting How to use the Grid Method to Achieve Accurate Shape and Perspective in Art Failure to achieve accurate shape and perspective in a finished work of art is why many of us give-up and declare ourselves "non-artists." There's nothing worse for a student's artistic selfconfidence than having a painting of a horse turn-out looking more like a dog. Yet there is a simple method of ensuring that the finished work will have proper shape and perspective. Artists dating back to the ancient Egyptians knew of a technique to break down a...
Step 1 This pose came straight from a still frame of the Coldplay Live 2003 DVD. I sketched the outline onto the canvas in pencil, then blocked in the main areas of colour. The figure and piano contain no blending at this stage, but I wanted to get the background right early on. The coloured lights were difficult to paint, I first laid down the tones in grayscale, then applied the colours in a thin wash.
The initial sketch, again taken from a still frame of a DVD. This took no more than ten minutes, and serves only as a guide to the overall shape and placement of the features.
The sketch is transferred to the canvas board, still using a pencil. At this stage you can spray the picture with a fixative to prevent the pencil dirtying your paint, but I use a hard pencil and don't usually have a problem. The basic colour is applied in big sections, with minimal blending at this stage.
My chief reason for confining these four talks to the outdoor sketch is because I have been an outdoor painter since I was sixteen years of age; have never in my whole life painted what is known as a studio picture evolved from memory or from my inner consciousness, or from any one of my outdoor sketches. My pictures are begun and finished often at one sitting, never more than three sittings; and a white umbrella and a three-legged stool are the sum of my studio appointments.
has argued that classical drapery is so prevalent in European art that “classicists tend to
think of it not as clothing but as an example of Greek and Roman art” (105). Drapery
has long been an ‘artistic conceit’, a device showing artistic flair and rendering. This is
brought to an apogee in the large paintings by the contemporary artist Alison Watt. The
contours of flesh hidden by the folds of cloth are searched for in vain as there is no
body hidden. Alison Watt’s work is a study of cloth, of folds, of voids, of form for...
