Jackie Shaw's Step-by-Step Painting Course

£14.99

Product description

In her latest book, Jackie Shaw, artist and best-selling author of the hugely successful The Big Book of Decorative Painting , takes readers to the next logical step in learning to paint. Jackie Shaw's Complete Painting Course provides readers with all the tested tools and techniques they need to create dynamic, original compositions of their own. The book begins with a thorough review of all the basics: materials and supplies, color theory and mixing, and design and composition. Then, it goes one step further, providing an array of interesting exercises and unique activities designed to inspire creative expression and prompt new artists to think "out of the box." Unlike The Big Book of Decorative Painting , which focuses on creating specific projects within three skill levels, Jackie Shaw's Complete Painting Course presents over 50 all-new fruit, vegetable, and flower designs, all supported by inspiring, full-color reference photos to add greater understanding of the subject. In addition, dozens of ready-to-use worksheets present detailed breakdowns of each motif, along with full-size shaded patterns to make getting started easy. With clear instruction, surefire strategies, and more than 500 full-color illustrations, this valuable reference empowers artists of all levels to take their creativity and imagination to new, inspiring heights.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
