Art Understanding

by Lourdes on Sep 2, 2011

A must have to every art teacher, student, art lover. Objective analysis of different art expressions through time; teachings on art basics and golden rules, (from balance, harmony, subject, concept, form, color, ....., everything). Helpful color images as examples through the teachings. Clear structure.

good basic book

by Nancy L on Apr 7, 2011

I am a new art student and this book is required in a class. It is a good fundamental book. It covers many different styles and has a lot of examples by famous artists within each discipline. Good book for a low Alibris price.


The Best Book for Artists

by Lizk on Sep 11, 2008

This is the most comprehensive book for artists. I have purchased copies for my adult art students, and I have used the principles for my students who are children. The principles are direct and well written. I recommend every artist own a copy of this book.

Blending shadows in acrylics

I have a hard time blending the edges of shadow and light while using acrylics. Can you recommend an inexpensive book on the subject?
