This is another paragraph Product Description: Light and shade playing across the surface of a painting brings magic into any work. Artists will be entranced by the variety of techniques in this handbook, which includes a comprehensive section on color mixing. The author's unique Artstrips, a detailed teaching tool, provide an easy-to-follow guide on specific techniques dealing with the correct manipulation of light and shade. Line and tone shading, the creation of volume, depth, sunlight, and shadow, are all fundamental to producing successful drawings and paintings. These techniques are demonstrated in the simplest of drawings as well as in the delights of layering in oils.
