Description

Tom demonstrates how to get started through sketching, toning a support, and establishing a value underpainting. He then explains special techniques, such as portraying light and shadows, expressing time of day, and rendering reflective surfaces. He also reveals tricks on creating brilliant compositions, from simplifying complex subjects and creating bold textures to telling a compelling story through a seemingly ordinary scene. Best of all, the vivid, full-color illustrations and innovative tips from the artist inspire readers to infuse their own paintings with light and colour.

Author Biography

Tom Swimm has felt an instinctive need to paint since his early childhood. Although he is self-taught, he has long been inspired by the work of Van Gogh, Monet, and Hopper, and he considers these masters his teachers. Tom's first one-man exhibition was at the Pacific Edge Gallery in Laguna Beach, California. His work has also been displayed in several other California galleries, at ArtExpo New York, and at the APPAF Exhibition in Paris, France.
