A Step-by-Step Guide for Absolute Beginners.
The 'Collins You Can Paint' series is for absolute beginners. Written by professional artist-teachers, these books start with real basics and assume no knowledge or experience of painting whatsoever.
Full of easy-to-follow exercises and demonstrations, the series will give even the most hesitant of beginners the enthusiasm and confidence to start painting in mixed media. All the instruction is broken down into really easy step-by-step exercises to help you to practise and build up your knowledge and expertise of painting gradually.
In this book, Wendy Jelbert takes the reader by the hand and shows, with very simple exercises, exactly how to paint all the separate features of a picture one by one, using a variety of different media. For example, you learn how to paint still life, flowers and gardens, trees, seascapes and buildings in gouache, acrylics, pastels and coloured inks.
By the end of the book you'll be able to produce a painting in mixed media to be proud of.
