Welcome to art school! This book goes beyond typical step-by-step drawing and painting books and delves into the fundamental framework of art and technique. Readers will feel as though they have their own art tutor as they learn lessons similar to those taught in an entry-level college art course. Topics include composition, perspective, form, value, color and mixing, lighting, and, most importantly, how these concepts relate specifically to still lifes and florals. With design and instructional elements, including chapter outlines, review sections, and “extra credit” exercises, readers will feel more than ready to take the next steps in their art education upon finishing this comprehensive book.
