My Ultimate Abstract Artist Resource Review

Highly Recommended

Recently several visitors of websites have asked me about this manual, which is being advertised quite widely across the Internet. So I purchased a copy myself to figure out what all the publicity was about.

My opinion on this e-book is, if you do not have this e-book in your collection, your collection is incomplete. I have no regrets for purchasing this.

A Walk Into Abstracts Volume Two

Learn Tips And Techniques Of 27 Artists As They Explain The Process They Used To Create 48 Abstract Paintings. 201 Pages, 48 Full Color Abstract Paintings. This is a collection of abstract painting techniques and ideas from 27 accomplished abstract artists and 45 pieces of abstract art work. This is actually volume two in the A Walk Into Abstracts series. Volume one was a massive collection of abstract art and so popular, I felt that artists were franticly searching for new abstract painting techniques. So, I contacted 27 of my favorite abstract artists and asked them to contribute to this book. These are different abstract artists and abstract paintings than in volume one. Most of the abstract artists featured in this book would say that their art is more real than other painting styles as the colors and textures they create are real.

Appreciating Value

Value, where the color is on the range of light to dark, can be balanced too. Darks and lights can carry weight in a picture darks more than lights. If all the dark area is on one side of the picture, it may feel heavy on that side. The value of the dark sky balances the value of the dark tree in the foreground in the painting in Figure 6-6. Notice that nothing is really going on in the sky area, but by adding the darker value, it directs the eye back into the light area of the painting. Value...

Setting the Scene Surfaces and Backgrounds

You probably have an infinite number of choices when it comes to the surface on which you set your still life. You can set up on a piece of furniture or a countertop. You can elevate it by setting it up on a box and draping fabric over the box. Likewise, you can choose all sorts of backgrounds to frame your items. You can use draped fabric, a wall, a wall with another piece of art on it, or nothing at all just some colors swirled behind. Think about the contrast of values and colors with the...

French War Watercolor Pen Ink Comic

By this time the student must desire to ink in a drawing. Ink work is extremely interesting, but it requires much practice. You may be able to render a nice drawing in pencil and be afraid to touch your pen to it. Many feel this way, and many good drawings have been spoiled because the student did not practice the lines on a separate piece of paper. The very idea that you are afraid will cause your hand to be unsteady, and a very steady hand is required. The idea is not to draw just an ink line...

Tints and shades

You can also add white or black paint to another color. When you add white, the new color becomes a tint of the original color. That's how red becomes pink, for example. When you add black, you make a shade of the original color. That's how you get maroon from red. Make a chart of tints and shades. You can use Figure 5-2 as a guide. 1. Using watercolor paper, grab your pencil and draw a 4-x-1-inch rectangle for each color exploration. 2. Choose a color and place it in the middle of the...

Things To Remember

Pencil Shading Still Life Drawings

When drawing colorful subjects, it is important to add the colors in layers, beginning with the lightest. Figure out the undertone, or lightest color of the drawing, before you begin. Using a circular motion with the flat of the pencil lead will give you the illusion of speckling like that found in pottery glazes. Look for the five elements of shading, particularly reflected light, when drawing rounded and spherical objects. Foreshortening is when the shape of an object appears distorted...

Dry Brush Drawing Stage

What mainly attracted David to this Parisian scene was the soft, misty mass of the Pont Neuf in the distance against the crisp, strong colors of the barge in the foreground. The other attraction was The paper is wetted with a large mop brush, leaving the area of the barge as dry paper. This is to preserve the whiles so that contrast added later will be even greater. The background bridge and building are then painted wet-into-wet, consciously alternating between warm and cool colors in the...

The Thumbnail Sketch

Thumbnails Sketches

The thumbnail sketch is a very small sketch approximately 2 x 2 of your subject as you are viewing it through your viewfinder. The purpose of this type of preliminary sketch is to visualize how your subject will look once you begin drawing it larger on your paper. Because of the simplicity and rapidity of execution, these sketches are very useful for experimenting with the arrangement of your subject within the format of your paper. It is recommended that you do two or three thumbnail sketches...

Selection of Color Markers

Felt Tip Marker Sketch

Color choices of markers are ever increasing. It is indeed difficult to start a useful collection because of the many variations of styles and colors and because of the cost factor. You should choose colors according to basic need rather than on impulse. Look for colors that blend well with each other instead of setting up a kaleidoscopic selection Limit your selection to not more than fifteen or twenty markers. You can always add to your collection as you progress. To ensure intelligent and...

Mechanism Of The

Human Body Arm

The muscles of the human body not only bend the body by muscular force, but also serve as brakes, slowing the reactions. For instance, the biceps and the brachialis anticus muscles are placed in the front of the upper arm and, by their contraction, they bend the elbow. If power ceased altogether, the forearm would drop down. But the opposing muscle slows the otherwise uncontrolled movement after the manner of a brake. This mechanism of slow motion pervades all the limbs and every movement of...

Put in the details like shingles bricks and curtains

Because details are so tempting, you may want to paint them first, but waiting until later can save you much heartache. Believe me, you don't want to add a shadow next to some detail you already painted and have the detail disappear underneath the shadow wash. Greeley, Colorado, the town I live in, was founded by Nathan Meeker. Horace Greeley sent the young newspaper man to Go west, young man and start a town more than 100 years ago.

The Modelled Drawing in Water Color Right Angle Study

Color Water

Today you will begin the practice of the modelled drawing in a third medium water color. Each medium that you use should enrich the others. Practice with pen and ink, for example, contributes something to the use of water color which practice with water color alone cannot give, making it fuller and more varied as a medium of expression. As far apart as etching and oil painting are, the one contributes to the other as in the work of Rembrandt. This change of medium might be...

Drawing Geometric Shapes and Adding Dimension with Shadows

Drawings With Geometric Shapes

One of the best methods to use when you're new to drawing is to see things as simple geometric shapes. Almost everything can be broken down, or abstracted, into circles, squares, and triangles. When these flat shapes get three-dimensional form, they become spheres and cylinders, cubes, and pyramids. When I start talking about drawing, everyone immediately says, I can't draw a straight line. Who cares Straight is boring. There aren't any straight lines in any of my paintings. Another stereotype...

Creating The Illusion Of Form

Form Drawing Examples

As with some of the earlier examples in the previous sections I have here shown other methods using different pen, ink and brush techniques to create the illusion of form on a two dimensional surface. The first method I have used employs a flat head brush and a series of washes to give the illusion of a sphere. Firstly draw the sphere outline and horizon line at the back to create the composition. Draw also the shape of the shadow. Start by using the Indian ink in the most dark and opaque...

Ost and found edges in a busy market scene

This busy market scene in the Italian city of Palermo provided David with an irresistible subject. There were so many plus factors. It was seething with bustle and activity, and the cool shadows of the narrow street showed up the rich, colorful foreground produce to perfection. The umbrellas were very important, providing a light area against the dark tones of the buildings. It was also an ideal opportunity to demonstrate the effectiveness of lost and found edges.

For some years now I have taught in Australia touring different states and cities. On one occasion I was in Melbourne and the organizer of the workshop hosted a party for me to which he invited all the top artists in the Melbourne area. It was a great evening and there was a tremendous sense of camaraderie. I soon became aware that I had been introduced to a nucleus of world-class watercolorists. In my travels around the world I haven't before encountered so much talent in one small area. David...

Foreshortening and Perspective

Foreshortened Figures

THE drawing opposite by Jean-Baptiste Greuze is a good example of fore-shortening and on page 43 I have posed a model somewhat similarly, but in about as difficult a pose as you could imagine. Almost every part of her is foreshortened or distorted in some way. This is done to show you one of those occasions when your brain and your eye have a head-on clash. Your mind, with its knowledge of what happens when the model stands up and the foreshortening disappears, confuses your eye, which is only...

Drawing Buildings

Perspective Drawing

Distortion due to excessively close vanishing points is a common error because close vanishing points in general are easier to handle than distant ones. So don't let laziness trap you. But also avoid the opposite extreme. Placing vanishing points too far apart is also wrong because it results in minimal convergence and hence a sense of flatness. Such is the case in the drawing above right . The flatness is the result either of viewing the subject from too great a distance, or of limiting the...

There was a conscious effort to keep the pen on the paper, with one unbroken uniform line, while drawing each individual palm frond. The pattern of positive and...

Here is the hunting animal on the job with tail cocked, nose alert for scents, muscles tensed for constant action. The artist began by completely drawing in the dog's outline and indicating its more important muscle, tendon, and bone structures in the torso and legs. At this stage, he was most concerned with getting the animal's shape, proportions, and attitude as correct as possible. 2. Here, the artist was concerned with values. Since this is a short-haired dog, the values will be closely...

The Frontal View of a Figure

Body Contours Logo

To draw the nude from the front implies personalizing it, transforming it into a particular person rather than a generic model. Thus, this type of pose more closely resembles the idea of a portrait. Although the purpose may not be to make a portrait, the frontal view of a nude forces the artist to pay serious consideration to the face, and this means endowing it with expression. The figure in frontal view requires a more personalized treatment of the face and a sketchier rendition of the rest...

Descriptive Contours

Seated Ami Reclining

Descriptive lines are those whose only goal and function is to describe the profile of forms and their volumes.These lines are responsible for the stylization of the forms that we have previously discovered, and they reflect the artist's personal vision and stylistic essence. Descriptive contour develops an authentic creation and organization of anatomical form. When drawing modulated lines, not just any stroke will do. The five lines below left represent the most common strokes used by novice...
