The chapters follow a progressive sequence that teaches basic skills through practical, accessible exercises; building a solid foundation that readers can rely on as painting projects grow more challenging. A special feature is the artwork and commentary of real students, which helps beginners set realistic goals and shows them how other artists have worked through inevitable setbacks to achieve success.

Painting Masterclass Creative Techniques of 100 Great Artists
Painting Masterclass Creative Techniques of 100 Great Artists
Drawing Masterclass explores the act of vision of the world's great artists, describing how their work was created to allow you to weave some of their magic into your own paintings. With detailed analyses and instructive creative tips sections, you can learn how to convey movement like Degas, apply acrylic like Twombly, and command colour like Matisse.

The book is organized into seven chapters covering important genres: nudes, figures, landscapes, still life, heads, fantasy and abstraction. Each chapter selects a cross section of artists and examines their practice in detail, using key paintings. Each artist is described through one of 100 selected masterpieces, plus a biographical profile and a practical look at the way the painting was made: the materials and technique, an examination of the ideas and inspiration behind its making and how the artist's life might reflect their concerns. Light and shade, rhythm, form, space, contour and composition are all covered in detail. The book covers a broad historical and geographic sweep, and includes many of the most celebrated male and female artists.

Pattern Design
Pattern Design
Throughout history, patterns have come in countless permutations of motif, colour-way and scale. Yet what all have in common is the regularity of repetition, that insistent rhythm that animates a flat surface with a sense of movement and vitality and gives it depth. Evident in the arrangement of petals on a flower head, the branching growth of stems and vines, the spirals of a seashell - pattern is inherent in the natural world that surrounds us. Powerful and transformative, pattern has an irrepressible joie de vivre.

With more than 1,500 illustrations of patterns from all ages and cultures, Pattern Design is a visual feast. This comprehensive compendium is arranged thematically according to type, with chapters on Flora, Fauna, Pictorial, Geometric and Abstract designs. These broad categories are supplemented by in-depth features highlighting the work of key designers from the rich history of pattern-making - such as William Morris, Sonia Delaunay, Charles and Ray Eames, Lucienne Day and Orla Kiely - along with sections detailing the characteristic motifs of key period styles from Baroque to Art Deco.

Paul Dibble X A Decade of Sculpture 2010 to 2020
Paul Dibble X A Decade of Sculpture 2010 to 2020
Paul Dibble has traversed many subjects in his sculptural work - often returning to them years later, like godwits coming home to roost.
Between 2010 and 2020, human figures and native New Zealand flora and fauna have been among Dibble's oft-revisited subjects, his work refining these figures to their simplest forms. Yet, while the forms may be simplified, the implied sense of movement, the anticipation of action and captured emotion are paramount.
Dibble is one of a select number of sculptors who cast their own bronze work, often in larger-then-life scale, creating a powerful effect. Prolific in his output and ambitious in his scope and vision, it is easy to see why Paul Dibble remains one of New Zealand's most original and respected sculptors.
