A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Painting in oil or acrylics is one of the most popular of the fine arts, wi th an enormous body of lore for the aspiring painter to master. Diane Ediso n offers a new approach that explains traditional techniques and materials, but also emphasizes expression and creativity. Edison wants the new painte r to feel fearless and free to experiment. Her method, honed though years o f teaching painting and drawing, quickly overcomes the stiff, forced feelin g experienced by most beginning painters. She believes that the dynamic use of color is the key to unlocking and understanding the possibilities in pa inting, and she offers a practical introduction to color theory and design to point the way. Her book includes inspiring art, much of it contemporary, along with clear instructional illustrations; her step-by-step exercises have been tested on hundreds of students with no prior painting experience. A successful artis t herself, with an unmistakable personal style, Edison shares not only know ledge and experience, but also a strong sense of what it means to be an art ist. Editorial Reviews There are many books that teach beginning painters to use a limited range of basic colors. Both of these volumes delve into the richer possibilities. In his brief, practical guide, Bartges, a successful "corporate" artist with works acquired by Marriott, Capital One, and Media General, explains how great artists from Degas to de Kooning consistently selected the best color combinations for their paintings.
