This All About Techniques book illustrates and explains the fundamentals of art theory, then proceeds to step-by-step advice on how to create complete, highly finished artworks. This volume is filled with full-color photos and art illustrations, the latter in some cases showing reproductions of well-known paintings. This book starts with advice on choosing pigments, canvas, and equipment, then instructs on the use of brushes, knives, and other artist's tools. The theory of color and its combinations is treated in detail, and then the art student is guided step-by-step through the creation of landscapes, portraits, nudes, still-lifes, animal illustrations, and more.
