Artist’s Manual: A Complete Guide to Painting
and Drawing Materials and Techniques

by Angela Gair

This was the first ‘artist’ type of book I ever purchased… to be honest initially I bought it more for inspiration than to learn techniques! The chaotic photographs of artist studios and artwork featured in the book are well worth the purchase. And flipping through the book again and again, I’ve found it has a lot of great tips on maintaining your artist tools, how to safely reuse and recycle solvents, and how to decipher paint labels to find the best quality for your project. It also has some great techniques & tips for all sorts of mediums (oils, pastels, watercolour, pencils, and more.) You can find Artist’s manual at Amazon.com.
