Based on the author's successful courses and workshops, Painting for the Absolute and Utter Beginner really does start at the beginning, helping new painters find 'what works' while providing information on all the necessary tools, tips and techniques they'll need to create a representational painting. The chapters follow a progressive sequence that teaches basic skills through practical, accessible exercises; building a solid foundation that readers can rely on as painting projects grow more challenging. A special feature is the artwork and commentary of real students, which helps beginners set realistic goals and shows them how other artists have worked through inevitable setbacks to achieve success.
