Bringing Textures to Life - John Sheppard

£14.99

Product description

Lavishly illustrated - with more than 550 full-colour illustrations - and richly informative, Bringing Texture to Life is a unique contribution to art instruction. Never before has there been a book that so thoroughly documents the step-by-step progression of every aspect of a painting. There are comprehensive lessons built around ten finished paintings, all of which contain a variety of meticulously rendered objects, including silver, lace, fruit, flowers, coloured glass, and seashells. Each of the paintings is seen in progress, from the initial sketches to the final rendering; and most are developed with more than fifty steps. Specific techniques are illustrated and described for more than one hundred objects, both everyday and exotic.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
