Product Description

About the Author

Kathleen Staiger has taught painting and drawing at every level for more than thirty-five years. A graduate of Hofstra University with masters degrees in art and literature, she is currently on the faculty of the Vero Beach Museum of Art in Florida, where she lives.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

How does an artist translate what she or he sees into a painting? It isn't as simple as plunking down two apples or looking out the window and then copying what you see.
This lesson is all about what goes into making an interesting painting. It will show you how to effectively arrange your subject, how to accurately sketch the subject onto the canvas, and how to successfully develop and finish the painting. Our subject will be a simple still life.
This lesson is divided into four parts. In the first part you will learn how to make your painting interesting and then apply what you learn to the arrangement of your chosen fruit or vegetables. In the second part you will learn how to draw your objects accurately onto the canvas. In the third part you will be guided in the painting of your still life; we will use what you have learned about color and shading in the previous lessons to paint fruit that looks as if you could pick it off the canvas.In the final part I will demonstrate standard painting procedures and paint a still life.

Format: Paperback
Before buying this book I borrowed it from the library to see if it was any good. I loved it so much I had to renew it four times! I'm a graphic designer, but never painted in oils before. Since using this book I've gained a tremendous amount of confidence in my painting. Staiger's step-by-step instructions are thorough and easy to follow. The assignments start at the very basics and take you all the way up to portrait painting. The colour mixing sections of this book are invaluable. I no longer waste expensive paint searching for the right colours. This book is a must for any beginner.
