Mar 23, Shannon rated it really liked it Shelves: art , how-to , read-in , non-fiction. So many great ideas and springboards for exercises in this book, and covers a lot of good starter topics. Definitely has got me wanting to explore many of the ideas, theories, practices and techniques covered in the book. Lately, I seem to be stumbling on art instruction books that seem to have no idea who their audience is, and Things Every Artist Should Know is no exception.
For its slim pages, it tries to cover way too much ground: pencil drawing, watercolor, watercolor pencils, pastel, oil painting, acrylic painting, airbrush painting, Chinese brush painting, calligraphy, portraiture, brushes, paints, gels, pastes, pigments, substrates, studio set up, color theory, perspective, foreshortening, composi Lately, I seem to be stumbling on art instruction books that seem to have no idea who their audience is, and Things Every Artist Should Know is no exception.
For its slim pages, it tries to cover way too much ground: pencil drawing, watercolor, watercolor pencils, pastel, oil painting, acrylic painting, airbrush painting, Chinese brush painting, calligraphy, portraiture, brushes, paints, gels, pastes, pigments, substrates, studio set up, color theory, perspective, foreshortening, composition — plus a few other things I'm sure I've forgotten.
All in pages! Not only that, but it goes into ridiculous and somewhat arbitrary detail on some topics, such as how to geometrically calculate the Golden Ratio lest you find yourself stuck in the Middle Ages with no access to a calculator , and how, step by step, to do a Chinese brush painting of a bamboo branch.
Given all that's stuffed in there, there's not a lot of room for many other of the supposed Things we Should Know and I question whether in such a generalized art book, it actually needed so many pages on such specific skills such as manually calculating the Golden Ratio or how to paint a sumi-e bamboo tree. Some of the numbered items are very basic — like reviewing simple color theory — and are clearly meant more for beginners than anyone brave enough to call themselves an "artist" for the purposes of picking this title up. So what you wind up with is a book that tries to be all things to everyone, but in only pages, can't really be much of anything to anyone.
Jan 13, Christina rated it it was amazing. Absolutely loved this book! I read this on my Kindle Fire from the library. This book is worth every penny and it is on my To-Buy list! So many how-to's in this book. I learned a lot in school in my art classes but I never learned all the little details of the different mediums that this book describes and teaches. I can't wait to read this again!
I highly recommend this book! Jan 09, Amanda rated it liked it. As other reviewers have stated, there's a comprehensive list of materials, but not enough space to explore each effectively. Nov 26, Alethea Crandell rated it it was amazing. This book covers all the basic techniques, principles, and rules of art.
It is a must read reference for beginning artists. Jan 20, kimyunalesca rated it really liked it Shelves: Gives you the basics on how to use art supplies,what materials you need and some techniques. Oct 24, James Hurley rated it it was amazing. Nice handy book full of fun tips and good review of techniques. A lot of basic introductory stuff that after years and years you more or less forgot about as you develop some bad habits. Well written, informative and useful.
