Artists have used mechanical devices to enhance and refine their work for nearly 300 years. Now there’s an innovative, one-stop guide that demonstrates scores of ways to use imaging-editing software (along with scanners, digital cameras, and printers) to develop drawings and paintings, no matter what the medium.



Here are dozens of tested tools and no-fail techniques for working with multiple photos . . . creating moods . . . working with layers . . . zooming in on detail . . . developing an abstract painting from a photograph . . . and much more. Examples from over 40 professional artists, including Ron Ranson, Richard McDaniel, and Penny Soto, cover a variety of mediums, styles, and subjects and clearly detail, step by step, proven ways to experiment with color, composition, value, scale, and proportion. This one-of-a-kind reference offers infinite possibilities!
