Light in Watercolor

By Monahan, Patricia

London: Studio Vista, 1995. From Library Journal Monahan consistently turns out some of the best art instruction books available. Here she treats the ephemeral phenomenon of light and how to capture it in the equally ephemeral medium of watercolor. Using styles that sometimes verge on the abstract, she explores light in wind, on water, in rain and fog, on architecture, in trees, indoors, and on the human figure. Ray Campbell Smith's recent Fresh Watercolour (David & Charles, 1995) is a fine study of light in landscape, but Monahan's book offers much more to work with. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.. Not Indicated. Hard Cover. Fine/Near Fine. Illus. by Color Illustrations.

NY: Viking Press, 1963. Here is an essential guide that is head and shoulders above the rest! In The Head, expert Andrew Loomis teaches you the basics of drawing the human head, including detailed drawings of a variety of male and female models in different poses. First he covers the basic proportions of the head and the proper placement of facial features. Then he shows you how to render light and shadow, as well as exploring simple techniques for capturing an array of facial expressions and depicting differences in type and character. This comprehensive guide is a welcome addition to any artist’s drawing reference library! William Andrew Loomis (1892-1959) was an illustrator from the United States. He was born in New York, but spent most of his working life in Chicago. He is best remembered now for a series of art instruction books that continues to influence realist artists, though they are in 2004 all out of print, except for some excerpts available from the art publisher Walter Foster. The Loomis family, who still holds the copyrights to all the books published by Andrew Loomis, has not expressed any intention of re-printing any of his work in recent days despite popular demand.
