Learn with Terry Harrison, the master of simple techniques, as he demonstrates how to create weathered windmills, old shacks and huts, farmhouses, cottages, timbered barns, and more.
Many step-by-step sequences show how to capture all the different architectural aspects of buildings, from tiled rooftops and windows adorned with flowers to ancient doors and rustic porches. Tips are included on painting details such as doors, windows, roofs, and woodgrain.
After covering the basics, Harrison shows how to create different textures and effects, incorporating them into simple demonstrations, each one offering guidance through all the stages of building up beautiful paintings.
This book, with its fresh, original content and uncomplicated approach, encourages artists to try out the techniques for themselves, stimulating them to create their own original pictures.
Terry Harrison became interested in art early on, attending art school at the age of 16. His studies led to a career in graphics, and then illustration, where he developed his painting style and perfected his techniques. When demand grew for his paintings, he quickly gave up his "day job" to paint full time. Harrison keeps a full schedule of exhibitions, private commissions, demonstrations, and painting holidays, and his fine art prints are sold in shops and galleries everywhere, including his own gallery. He is an energetic and prolific painter, and his regular re-bookings for demonstrations reflect an enthusiastic response to his educational and entertaining style.
