  • The Art of Plein Air Painting: An Essential Guide to Materials, Concepts, and Techniques for Painting Outdoors

    Plein air painting, the art of painting outdoors, offers possibilities artists can’t find inside the studio. When painters set up easels outside, they put themselves in direct contact with nature. Responsiveness to the landscape’s changing light, forms, and colors yields work that’s lively and spontaneous. However, plein air painting also poses a set of challenges not encountered in the studio. There are matters of choosing a location, rationing the number of supplies to bring, working within a time limit, adjusting to sudden changes in weather, and possibly even testing physical endurance when transporting equipment to a painting site.   The Art of Plein Air Painting presents the full picture of what painting en plein air requires. Devoted plein air artist M. Stephen Doherty guides readers through how to choose the best spot, which materials and tools to bring, and the basics of mixing colors and preparing canvases and panels ahead of time. Sidebars and step-by-step demonstrations cover topics that range from sketching out a composition to starting a painting with washes or lines, toning a surface, and doing a cityscape. Doherty even teaches how to do a nocturne—a painting made after the sun has gone down.   Works by famous plein air painters, such as Claude Monet and ...

  • Hensche on Painting (Dover Art Instruction)

    An artist for over 70 years and a teacher for more than 60, painter Henry Hensche (1901–92) employed Monet’s Impressionist tradition of seeing and painting color under the influence of light, and he taught his students to "see the light, not the object." In this book, his student and biographer John Robichaux examines the artist’s basic painting philosophy and methodology, as expounded in his famous classes and workshops on Cape Cod.A prolific artist and inspiring teacher, Hensche touched countless lives as he challenged pupils to understand how they could make their paintings better by having a particular vision of color — whether in a still life, landscape, or figure painting. One of his many students, Robert Longley, claims that Hensche "showed us that there was no shortcut to great art. His specific teachings on color and light are useful tools in the creation of art, but of greatest importance was Henry's relentless quest for beauty."Brimming with practical advice for amateurs and professionals alike, Hensche on Painting is intended to help further develop artists' own visual sense of nature.
