What Shall I Paint?
How to Find the Right Subject in Watercolour, Oils and AcrylicsBook - 2001
How do you decide what makes a good subject for a painting? You can always rely on the tried and tested themes: the bowl of fruit, the vase of flowers, the seated figure or portrait, the classic landscape. But what about other ideas? Hazel Soan believes that painting starts with seeing, and in this eye-opening book, she shows readers how to develop their observational skills and become more aware of all the elements that make up a good picture. How you look, what you see, your interpretation, thoughts, and feelings are all crucial to the success of your painting. So, too, is your choice of medium. With a combination of ideas, practical instruction, projects, step-by-step demonstrations, and a wealth of color illustrations, What Shall I Paint? will ensure that artists need never again be at a loss for inspiration.
