Techniques in Painting
Author : Brigid Marlin
Number of pages: 176
This beautifully illustrated book for practising artists and art students examines everything there is to know about the techniques used by the Dutch Masters of the Golden Age. From the preparation of surfaces and the creation of paints and pigments to the methods used, award-winning artist Brigid Marlin considers how these skills can work in modern settings and includes stunning representations of contemporary artists' work.
Discover the techniques and materials used by Rembrandt in his portraits, how to achieve balance and tension, rhythm and points of interest in the style of Bruegel and Rubens, and how to recreate luminous still-life paintings like those of the Van Eyck brothers. Projects include clear, step-by-step demonstrations to replicate these almost-forgotten techniques as well as examples of works which they inspired.
