Book Review: Practical Course in Drawing and Painting
I’ve looked at and read many of these survey art books. This one that I got from my library is considerably better than most. It has a much wider range of techniques and media than most books. I got some good ideas I want to explore, like making object’s shadows in their complimentary color. To say that it is a “course” is a little misleading; this is not curriculum. However, this could stretch anyone to try a medium, subject matter or style they haven’t before, since it presents so many possibilities. Need a Christmas gift for a budding artist? Consider this book; I give it 5 stars.
