A great guide for painters who want to experiment with mixed media and make their landscape paintings more adventurous. Popular artist and teacher, Soraya French, encourages readers to experiment with mixing media and to create more adventurous paintings and broaden their artistic horizons. The media that Soraya uses in this book are acrylics, pastels and collage and she shows how to bring the best out of mixing these media with handy tips, some simple projects and several step-by-step demonstrations. Landscape, and the way it changes over the seasons, is the ideal subject for experimenting with different textural effects using mixed media. Contemporary Landscapes in Mixed Media is divided into four seasonal chapters, with each section dealing with the colours, shapes, patterns and textures particular to each season. There is information on mixing colours relevant to each season, as well as interesting ways of painting flowers and other details of nature, how to create exciting compositions, and how to add architectural aspects within the landscape. In some landscapes figures may be added in order to animate the composition and create a narrative. This practical and inspirational book will help and encourage the reader to explore the fascinating potential of mixed media and to adopt a freer attitude in their painting.

Bring a new level of innovation into your landscape drawings. This book is aimed at artists who wish to explore new ways of using a variety of drawing media to create striking, dramatic landscapes. The author, Robert Dutton, works in a loose style and combines media such as liquid graphite, inks, metallic inks, charcoal and water-soluble painting and drawing pastels. He also experiments with collage work. Predominantly focusing on working in black and white, Drawing Dramatic Landscapes explores basic drawing techniques using a limited range of media, then introduces new techniques and products as the reader progresses. This is a highly instructive guide to the techniques Robert himself uses, with numerous exercises and larger step-by-step projects throughout the book showing how he works. Alongside these will be numerous examples of the author's finished artworks accompanied by informative captions explaining the methods used to create them, thereby providing both instruction and inspiration. Robert works outdoors from life much of the time, finishing his artworks in the studio later. His work is both achievable and aspirational, making this a highly attractive book for artists of all abilities.

The countryside of Norfolk has for centuries challenged artists to paint its wide landscapes, seascapes and incomparable skies. And while many have tried, few have wholly succeeded. Brian Ryder is among the fortunate handful of contemporary painters who the public recognise as successfully capturing both the physical quality and the essential atmosphere of the places he paints. His bold approach to making his work, his uncompromising self criticism allied to years honing his painterly skills, give his paintings an exciting and fresh appeal - combining the best of painting tradition with a unique contemporary flair. In this book we are given an insight into the background of the artist, his early life and his development as a painter. Despite a number of setbacks his determination to succeed brought early recognition in the form of an exhibition and a gold medal at La Biennale deVenezia. His love ofVenice is portrayed through the paintings of that wonderful city that are included here.

"Over a period of three days in 1956, a young photographer, Roger Mayne, explored Southam Street, North Kensington, and photographed the children and street life. This London back street became his stalking ground for five years, resulting in one of the great social documents of the era. In 1963 the street and the surrounding area was declared unfit for habitation. By 1969 it had been demolished. Roger Mayne recorded the newly arrived immigrants and the vitality of the street culture. The pictures represent a vanished age, in which child's play, though rumbustious, is marked by innocence. Behind the poverty lay cherished community values which vanished alongside the demolished fabric of the neighbourhood." "Colin MacInnes, whose novel Absolute Beginners described Notting Hill in that period so accurately, praised Mayne's work. His pictures appeared on numerous Penguin book-jackets during the sixties. After the birth of his own children, he continued to photograph in the privacy of his family. He was much influenced by his friends among the painters of St. Ives. For years he has photographed in the Mediterranean and in the landscape of the West Country near his home in Lyme Regis. He is admired by photographers as diverse as Bruce Weber and Don McCullin, and is regarded as one of the masters of British photography."--Jacket.
