Each title focuses on a specific aspect of painting or drawing, and includes tips that even experienced professionals will find helpful. These information-packed books are handy artists' companions for the reference shelf, but are also small enough to carry along with art supplies on field trips. Urban Sketching and Painting takes the artist inside the techniques behind the exciting artistic movement of location drawing. Includes captioned color illustrations and notes on how famous artists solved specific problems.
