Learning to paint is besides only learning about how to use your material, also a way to learn how to observe. And that is the beginning of an adventure without an end.
Richly illustrated, written with a great sense of humour and accessible to all. This painting book offers knowledge beyond your dreams, and gives you insight in the classical painting and drawing art. Lux Buurman, painter and teacher, describes the practise of painting, step by step and from a theoretical introduction. Without restraint she shares her knowledge and experience and literally gives the reader access to the secrets of her studio that she shares together with her husband and also painter, Ab van Overdam.
Consider it a journey through the wonderland of the flat plane, in which aspects such as perspective drawing, anatomy, tools to work with, and techniques are discussed. This unique painting book contains practical examples and contemporary insights, with findings based on years of research about classical painting techniques, the specialty of the artist couple. This book perfectly responds to the renewed interest in craft and materials of the classic painter and drawing art.
