Artists' Rescue Tactics
How to Solve All your Painting ProblemsBook - 2005
Published in association with The Artist magazine, this troubleshooting book for the practising artist features a series of projects showing how to rescue paintings that, for a variety of reasons, are not working satisfactorily. What do you do when a painting just isn't working? Rather than discard it, there are a number of ways in which it can be altered, corrected or improved, and this book aims to show you how. Full of practical hints, tips, studies and step-by-step demonstrations, it provides solutions to many of the most common painting problems that amateur artists encounter in their work. The book features the work of several well-known and popular artists who look at particular problems and provide practical guidance on how to rescue unsuccessful paintings, using watercolour, oils, pastels and acrylics. A wide range of subject matter is covered, including landscapes, seascapes, flowers, still life and people, and the different styles of the featured artists make for great variety and interest.
