Barron's Beginner Art Guides are substantial books that pack in lots of information at a value price. Covering the fundamentals of art, each guide provides a series of projects, presented in order of difficulty, and supplemented with practical suggestions, ideas for color experiments, and techniques for creating special effects.
The final page of each book presents a capsule biography of a famous artist whose work offers classic examples of the title's central subject.
This volume summarizes basic art principles for art students and ambitious amateurs who want to expand their knowledge, and presents several dry-medium projects to complete. This title also presents a brief yet enlightening illustrated discussion of James Ensor, a Belgian artist particularly noted for his work in charcoal, chalk, and sanguine.
