Painting Still Life in Watercolour


Lesley E Hollands

Summary
Still life painting is a beautiful, tranquil art which is as rewarding for the novice as for the experienced artist. This
practical book captures the essence of still life and uses a wonderful array of subjects to celebrate its
possibilities in watercolor: subjects that range from a collection of curiosities brought back from a walk on the
beach and a pile of fruit and vegetables unpacked on the kitchen work top, to a more formally arranged group of
carefully chosen objects. This book guides you from the beginning stages of painting a single object to more
challenging and complex groups, and finally to a range of approaches to abstract painting. Compositions include:
fabrics, china, glass, flowers, and fruit and vegetables.

The Scribblings of a Madcap Shambleton


Noel Fielding

Summary
A beautiful and hilarious new book of artwork from the star of The Mighty Boosh
Noel Fielding's book channels the creative influences of Henri Rousseau, Roy Lichtenstein, and Salvador Dalí,
through the comedian's strange, singular, and surreal mind. Hilarious and beautifully produced, this is a visual
feast which will delight and entertain Noel's many impassioned fans.

"Growing up in the jungles of India there was no need for drawing or painting. I would sometimes arrange ants
into primitive still lives or scratch out portraits onto the trunks of trees. Things changed when I was 11, a lame
tiger who owned a stationery shop gave me the keys to his stock room, I would roll around in acrylic and oil
pastels in reverie, licking canvases and tucking coloured pencils into my wild hair. It was here I learned how to
draw and paint well enough to be accepted into Croyden Art College. There, Dexter Dalwood (Turner Prize
nominee) taught me and after two years under his supreme tutelage and much hard graft he advised me to
Canongate UK become a comedian." -Noel Fielding

Weaving Textiles That Shape Themselves


Ann Richards

Summary
An inspirational and exciting book that explains the processes and potential of weaving high-twist yarns into
fabrics that are transformed by washing

Weaving with high-twist yarns and contrasting materials can create fabrics with lively textures and elastic
properties. Although these fabrics are flat on the loom, they are transformed by washing: water releases the
energy of the different yarns and the fabrics "organize themselves" into crinkled or pleated textures. This
fascinating book explains the processes and potential of this approach. With inspirational pieces, practical know-
Crowood Press how, and advice about building on experience, it gives a broad introduction to designing with high-twist yarns.

Out of print and virtually unobtainable for many years, this facsimile of the 1950 edition with a new foreword by

way artists develop them. The core of the book examines the processes, including clay preparation, beginning
throwing, and developing skills. Step-by-step color photos follow the throwing of various pot types and capture

How to Talk to Children About Art


FranCoise Barbe-Gall

Summary
Anticipating how kids react to paintings by artists as diverse as Botticelli, Vermeer, Degas, Chagall, and Pollack,
this resource for adults who want children to love and understand art prepares them for the types of questions
kids ask. Providing parents and teachers with valuable tips for making any visit to a museum with children a
success, this guide offers a great primer or refresher course on art history, allowing adults to confidently answer
common questions, such as why some paintings are signed and others are not, some pictures are small and
others are very large, and why the Dutch paint so much fruit. Questions and answers about 30 well-known
paintings provide historical background, explain genres such as still life and portrait, and demystify religious and
mythological themes. Color-coded tabs let adults flip to sections appropriate to the ages of their children (5-7
years, 8-10 years, 11-13+ years).

This comprehensive art curriculum can easily be integrated into any teacher's existing instruction and provides
thrilling and rewarding projects for elementary art students, including printmaking techniques, tessellations,
watercolors, calligraphic lines, organic form sculptures, and value collages. Detailed lessons-developed and

approach that improves general vocabulary and supports science, math, social studies, and language arts.
