In The Painterly Approach, readers learn to bridge the gap between what they see as artists and what they feel. Topics covered include how to identify abstract patterns, how to define an object by planes of color rather than value, and how shapes relate as the artist applies the painterly approach.
This book helps readers create appealing paintings, and also shows how to give their paintings that extra "oomph" that translates the realistic into expressive, poetic works of art.
The included exercises focus on brushwork, color, value, and composition, while nine step-by-step demonstrations in oil, pastel, and acrylic show how to capture a sense of mood, time, and place. The book focuses primarily on landscapes, but is applicable to any subject.
