MY NEW ART TEACHING BOOK - Brush strokes, Mediums, Methods & Subjects
Review of Peter Wood’s “Mediums, Methods, and Subjects”
I am a beginning artist and this review is intended to convey my impression of Peter’s source material in this book.
First off when you start out as a beginning artist as I am you do not know what you do not know….as you go along you begin to understand how mystical painting, drawing, original art and the whole creative process really is.
Peter’s material is a godsend to beginning artists who can be become quite overwhelmed with where and how to begin the process of developing as an artist. The material outlined in this book demystifies and explains every nuance one needs to know about paints, and materials. This is crucial for beginning artists so they begin their development in the right direction. Peter explains the different brushes that can used and typical applications for each which is great information for beginners and to be used as future reference material. I especially enjoyed the sections where Pastels, Watercolor, Acrylic, and Oil mediums were discussed. Something that has always been a bit of a mystery for me is color theory, here Peter presents a very straight forward breakdown of this subject that even I could understand!
There is art history, techniques, more expansive information about painting/drawing materials, and methods for achieving a particular style of painting such as still life, landscape, waterscape, etc. In essence almost, any subject matter is discussed as to how to achieve that type of painting.
Tremendous value for what the cost was for this book. I found myself reading and re-reading material that really intrigued me each time gaining more clarity on the subject. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and is a permanent fixture in my reference art library.Scott Dyer - Canada
The artwork arrived to us yesterday afternoon, and I unpacked it and gave it to Matt last night as a 40th birthday gift. He absolutely LOVED it. And I absolutely love it. Reminded him of Brighton and made him miss it very much. it was really cool being able to show him the video you sent me as well so he could see how something like that gets made.
It is just so, so much better than I even imagined. The texture and the colours are amazing. I mean, I was a bit nervous buying something from the internet, it can be a little bit risky after all. It really is very impressive. You are very talented.
Also, thank you so much for your careful packaging as well. There was a note from Australian Customs saying they did indeed open it, but obviously it wasn't an issue, as it has still arrived to us all wonderfully packed and in one piece.
So, all in all, very very happy. Thank you so very much for all your help! :)
Thank you Peter for a fabulous day and for the lovely photographs.
Hope very much to see and work with you again- thoroughly enjoyed the workshop.
Thanks again, best wishes, Lynn
