Lessons In Realistic Watercolor
Author: Mario Andres Robinson
Publisher: The Monacelli Press, LLC
Release Date: 2016
Pages: 176
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"Robinson's approach to the medium of watercolor is primarily traditional. Many artists find watercolor difficult to control and are often disappointed with the results. The water meanders across the surface of the paper and, given the proper nuance by the artist's brush, it will reluctantly settle. The end result is the bright white of bouncing light contrasted with the liveliness of mysterious shadows. Robinson's method teaches artists to layer colors from light to dark and to focus on the highlighted areas first. Further, his "live in the moment" approach embraces watercolor's unpredictability as part of the process, the end result being a painting with intensity, spontaneity, and beauty. For the beginner, mid-level, or professional artist, Robinson introduces his unique working method that shifts the focus from the end result to the enjoyment of each stage of the painting process. Readers will learn how to start by stretching the paper to achieve a pristine surface; choose the right materials (brushes, palettes, paints, etc.); do a preliminary drawing; establish the subject's light, middle, and dark values with a tonal underdrawing; create symmetrical features and mass big shapes using intuition to achieve a more natural appearance; work through a monotone wash; explore water manipulation and work wet into wet for color mixing; finish up with a special drybrush technique; avoid common mistakes; set up an artist's studio; and establish yourself as a pro."

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Academy is a two-year training program focusing on the methods and information presented in 19th century ateliers and academies. The second year painting program is detailed in this book. The fully illustrated text is organized into 3 sections. The first section provides schedules, course descriptions, supply lists, and assignment guidelines. The second section details concepts of painting, including materials, types of realism, numerous methods of applying paint, and important information on color. The third section is filled with illustrated demonstrations and step-by-step guides walking the student through processes first demonstrated in class. The end of the book follows with a glossary of terms, as well as suggested books, magazines, and artists for students to research. With nearly 500 full color images, 21 demonstrations, and tons of information that ties back to the methods and techniques of the old masters, this book provides a new and unique link to the art schools of the past without the cost or time of attending an atelier or school. This book initially began as an accompaniment to the assignments and lessons in class. From its initial inception, it has grown in content and evolved in format, and now can educate independently from The Academy program. It was, however, written in conjunction with a series of videos that dive into the topics and processes in greater detail. The videos offer nearly 100 hours of footage covering 22 demonstrations, 8 lectures, and instructions for all the assignments taught in class. Together the book and videos form the "Classical Painting Bundle." For more information about the videos, visit www.ReesFineArt.com. Timothy Rees trained and taught at the Palette and Chisel Academy in Chicago, IL before relocating to Scottsdale, AZ. Here he wrote, developed, and launched The Academy training program at Scottsdale Artists' School and Rees Atelier.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Figure Drawing Atelier offers a comprehensive, contemporary twist to the very traditional atelier approach to the methods that instruct artists on the techniques they need to successfully draw and ultimately paint the figure. The book offers art instruction, practical and progressive lessons on drawing the figure, and high-quality sketchbook paper in a beautiful package that includes blank pages for sketching and copying. Artists will then have a record of their process, like with a sketchbook, which many artists like to document and save. In this elegant and inspiring workbook, master contemporary artist and author Juliette Aristides breaks down the figure drawing process into small, manageable lessons, presents them progressively, introduces time-tested principles and techniques in the atelier tradition that are easily accessible, and shares the language and context necessary to understand the artistic process and create superior, well-crafted drawings. Atelier education is centered on the belief that working in a studio, not sitting in the lecture hall, is the best way to learn about art. Every artist needs to learn to master figure drawing. Ateliers have produced the greatest artists of all time--and now that educational model is experiencing a renaissance. These studios, a return to classical art training, are based on the nineteenth-century model of teaching artists by pairing them with a master artist over a period of years. Students begin by copying masterworks, then gradually progress to painting as their skills develop. Figure Drawing Atelier is like having an atelier in a book--and the master is Juliette Aristides, a classically trained artist and best-selling art-instruction author with almost rock star popularity in the contemporary world of representational art. On every page, Aristides uses the works of Old Masters and today's most respected realist artists to demonstrate and teach the principles of realistic figure drawing and painting, taking students step by step through the learning curve yet allowing them to work at their own pace. Unique and inspiring, this book offers a serious art course for serious art students.

This Japanese painting book offers step-by-step lessons with easy-to-understand explanations through nearly 60 illustrations. The numerous photographs at the end of the book, in addition to the works of great masters in the art of suiboku, include several paintings by the author's pupils to prove what the amateur can achieve through careful observance of instructions and patient practice.
