PORTRAIT PAINTING ATELIER SUZANNE BROOKER PDF

Look Inside. The art of portraiture approached its apex during the sixteenth century in Europe with the discovery of oil painting when the old masters developed and refined techniques that remain unsurpassed to this day. The ascendance of nonrepresentational art in the middle of the twentieth century displaced these venerable skills, especially in academic art circles. Coming out of this dedicated movement, Portrait Painting Atelier is an essential resource for an art community still recovering from a time when solid instruction in art technique was unavailable in our schools. This method unifies the entire painting, creating a beautiful glow that illuminates skin tones and softly blends all the color tones. Readers will also find valuable instruction in paint mediums from classic oil-based to alkyd-based, the interactive principles of composition and photograph-based composition, and the anatomy of the human face and the key relationships among its features.

Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. Verified Purchase. I was very excited to get this book, and spent a great deal of time going through it.

However, it does not get as much use as I had hoped for. I believe a few reviewers mentioned this problem, but most of the painting tutorials in the book seem to be the same technique applied to different portraits. To be completely honest, I was hoping to learn some glazing techniques that could produce a vibrant image similar to the cover, but instead was left with several tutorials on how to create grayish looking portraits.

I would have liked to seen more variety, perhaps even instruction from multiple artists. It's a good book, just not a comprehensive manual on portrait painting. I'm pretty disappointed about this book, or may be I had too high expectation. This is about how to do oil painting, how to mix color, do under painting, glaze, etc.

But there is very little about how to painting portrait. And this book talks very little about it if any. Maybe the content IS the most important part of old master's painting techniques, then this might be a good book. Easy to follow! The book explained color values, and combinations of compatible colors for the best skin and shadow tone results.

How to layout the most effective pallet for specific portrait subjects, as well as examples of alternate painting techniques. An easy to follow tutorial for the non experienced and the more advanced oil painter. I refer to it regularly when starting a new painting. Portrait Painting Atelier is a wonderful and thorough book! I kept passing it up in my searches for figure painting books, and finally made the purchase.

And I'm so glad I did. I don't paint in the style of the Old Masters, but the material presented made me feel like I was being ushered into a school of thoughtful learning and approaches that I had not learned in other figure classes. It's not a book you rush through and all the chapters-such as glazing - don't interest me right now.

It's a book I'll refer to over and over. Really good examples of ciarro -scurro technique and more. MUCH more! And inspiring too. Includes examples of work by an old teacher of mine, Domenic Cretara, among others, and very informative. Go to Amazon. Back to top.
