Summary

Summary

Through shadow and light, a stenciled painting can look almost real--with texture, gradations of color, and a 3-D quality that fools the eye. Unlike freehand trompe l'oeil, stenciling is easy to learn, so beginners get great results with little practice. Trace and cut stencils with bridges, or multi-step ones that break down each element in the drawing. Begin with simpler designs--a pleated fan, perhaps--that teach shading skills, and then see how to capture the delicate tones of a perfect rose. Over 35 projects. 160 pages (all in color), 7 5/8 x 10 1/4. NEW IN PAPERBACK

Library Journal Review

Jennings surveys a broad variety of media, from charcoal to pastels, watercolor, gouache, oils, and more, and he relies on the advice and work of a large group of artists to help the beginner choose media, tools, and techniques. Unlike the authors of Art School, Jennings creates an actual curriculum here. Exercises that compare the same subject, e.g., a red-enameled coffeepot, painted in both acrylic and pastel, are enlightening. Very highly recommended. (c) Copyright 2010.
