The work of artists discussed in this section has shown that the techniques used have a great influence over the qualities of the work. You can only express yourself well if you are confident in your method. The pictures in this book are only reproductions and as such can do little to inform you of the surface quality of the works examined. Size and color are equally important and these are difficult to convey in a book. Without reading the text you might not have realised that the frozen breath on the figures in Giovanni's painting (page 110) was added with a sponge, that the rock surface in George's painting (page 126) was produced by removing the paint with a paper tissue, and that Nick's painting (page 98) is really a pencil and crayon drawing.
