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.

Light and shadows influence the way we look at art. In this book, see how artists use light to make their paintings come to life. Readers find out how colors make shadows and how shadows can change the shapes of objects. Beginning artists are then encouraged to paint light for themselves.
