Showing Motion in Art
Using works by great masters as examples, How to Look at Art explores how artists throughout the centuries have portrayed motion, color, light, distance, and more through their paintings. Beginning artists will first see a work in full, then the same painting broken down into details. Finally, young artists will be able to use these examples to create their own masterpieces.
Paintings can freeze a moment in time and capture it forever. Take a closer look at how artists portray life in motion. This book includes paintings by Degas, Rousseau, Hokusai, and others, exploring some of their secrets in detail. Beginning artists will be able to use these examples when painting movement for themselves.
