review Painting Masterclass

Like having 100 of the world’s greatest painters at your side giving you their own personal tips and advice – Painting Masterclass examines 100 paintings from art history the way they were made what they do well and how and what we can learn from them   Throughout the history of painting one of the best ways in which many great painters have developed their own personal approaches has been by copying other artists’ work Learning from great artists helps to encourage a discerning eye as well as an understanding of colour materials and perspective and can inspire further innovation With the detailed analyses and instructive creative tips sections in this book you can learn how to convey movement. I love the scope gorgeous artwork and descriptions of techniues featured in PAINTING MASTERCLASS The colorful 288 page book is a lovely intro to the greatest artists especially useful for neophytes but would appeal to anyone who loves visual art Organized by genre with two pages per painting it works not as a comprehensive guide but rather a beautiful instructive overview Highly recommended Pub Date 28 May 2019Thanks to the author uarto Publishing Group White Lion Publishing and NetGalley for the review copy Opinions are mine PaintingMasterclass NetGalley
