Artists Manual (Angela Gair)

Artists Manual (Angela Gair)

When I moved to the US 2 years ago I still needed to learn so many different art terms and words. The first time I went to an art store I realized that my vocabulary about materials and equipment was too limited. So I purchased this book (of course in a second-hand bookstore) to learn new vocabulary and to explore different materials and techniques. 

This book covers following sections:

  • Paper, Canvas and other supports
  • Drawing Media
  • Charcoal
  • Pastels
  • Conté Crayons
  • Pen and Ink
  • Markers and fiber-tip pens
  • Painting Media
  • Oil
  • Watercolor
  • Gouache
  • Tempera
  • Acrylics
  • Color & Composition
  • Subject and Themes (Landscape, still life and human forms)
  • Studio set up

This book also provides health and safety tips, how to read a paint tube and a glossary of terms. It definitely helped me a lot to pick up on important vocabulary.
