a treasure trove for artists who wants to hone their crafts without the inconvenience of travelling to faraway places
DRUMREE, Ireland (PRWEB) May 01, 2015
Inspired by their love for photography and art, authors Julie and Anthony Hand reveal photographic images that artists may utilize in their paintings. “Images To Paint: Vol 1” (published by Xlibris UK) showcases the beauty and allure of Ireland.
As amateur artists, the couple realizes that some of the photographs they were taking on their journeys around Ireland might interest artists, allowing them to paint locations and sights that they themselves are not able to visit. As some artists specialize in certain subjects i.e. lighthouses, landscape, castles, flowers and many more, they have included 17 sections on different subjects, hoping to cover most topics. Although not meant to teach one how to draw or paint with water colours, oils or acrylic, this book will bring the outdoors inside and make it easier for the artists to be more versatile with their work without having to travel all over the country.
Perfectly capturing the vivid splendor of Irish grasslands, rolling hills, famous landmarks, dramatic cliffs and beautiful flowers, “Images To Paint: Vol 1” is a treasure trove for artists who wants to hone their crafts without the inconvenience of travelling to faraway places. It is the authors hope that the landscape images of Ireland will encourage artists, not only to paint but to visit them as well.
