This beautifully designed box set is the perfect companion for any artist. It includes a complete practical guide to art technique, with detailed sections on drawing, watercolour and pastel techniques, combined with a beautiful high-quality sketchbook with fine-art paper. Divided into four parts, the book How to Paint and Draw covers all the most popular mediums: drawing; watercolour; oil and acrylic; pastel. Each section explains in full the range of materials and equipment available today, and reveals how to get the best out of them. It shows clearly how to do the basic setting up and preparation, and takes the reader through all the first techniques, with step-by-step practical projects. More specialized methods are then explained, clearly and simply, for increasingly advanced and sophisticated effects. Throughout, lively and inspirational works by contemporary artists illustrate the skills in action, and provide a constant source of inspiration. Special 'focus' features are included on painting and drawing popular subjects such as portraits and figures, landscapes, buildings and flowers. 700 at a glance, step-by-step photographs and inspirational examples ensure that the book is both a visual delight and foolproof to follow. With tried-and-tested techniques and expert guidance, this comprehensive book provides an irresistible and invaluable reference for every amateur artist. This practical guide is accompanied by a beautiful covered sketchbook, in a handy portable size for instant sketching practice.
