A Miscellany of Artists' Wisdom

A Miscellany of Artists' Wisdom

by Diana Craig (Author)


This miscellany of artists' knowledge is an open door into the art studios of old, letting the reader in on some of the artists' secrets - the invention of oil paint and how to mix your own, the origin of pigments, the discovery of perspective, how to prepare a canvas or watercolour paper, and how to achieve luminous flesh tones and correct proportions of the human form. Thoughts and quotes from great artists, past and present, are included.
