The Fundamentals Of Drawing Still Life
Still life has been a popular genre for many hundreds of years, and artists wishing to explore it can find inspirational examples from the time of the romans right up to the present day, encompassing murals from the Italian Renaissance, the lavish floral studies from the Netherlands in the early 17th century, the exuberant handling of the Impressionists, and the surprising new shapes and dimensions introduced by the Cubists and Surrealists. In The Fundamentals of Drawing Still Life, Barrington Barber explores the genre in all its richness. A teacher as well as a working artist, the author demonstrates in this book his wealth of experience in leading students through the fundamental steps of learning to draw and onwards by means of practice studies and learning from the work of earlier artists. Whether you are a beginner or are already well-versed in the art of drawing, you will find much in this book to inspire you and to develop your talent.
