Si vous êtes pressé : Un livre qui fera histoire dans l'apprentissage et le perfectionnement du peintre; non limité à l'acrylique car il a des conseils applicables aussi à l'huile. Achat hautement recommandé pour tous les niveaux de peintres, même s'il est en anglais.

Longue description : Tout d'abord, le lecteur de mon commentaire doit savoir que je suis ami de Lorena et que j'appréciais son art bien avant que son livre ne soit paru - j'ai admiré notamment deux dessins au crayon de son époque des années 90 -. Connaissant l'artiste je n'ai pas hésité à commander son livre en aveugle.

J'essaierai donc de factoriser ma sympathie avec l'auteur autant que possible; le lecteur saura lire avec la distance adéquate et m'absoudre de mon inévitable partialité. Si j'étais prof d'arts plastiques, j'aurais recommandé à mes élèves de l'acheter. Car son prix n'est pas à l'hauteur de sa valeur - à mon avis, il devrait coûter dans les 100-120 euros.

Le livre de Lorena Kloosterboer est un livre du XXIème siècle, le siècle de l'information. L'auteur commence donc à expliquer les matériaux, puis les textures, les couleurs, avant d'attaquer la composition. Pour des esprits rationnels comme moi, c'est une délice : elle suit exactement la même démarche de description en couches d'abstraction que pour la modélisation d'un système complexe, soit-il informatique, nucléaire ou aérospatial.

HASH(0x8a92b924) étoiles sur 5 Gorgeous Book on Painting with Acrylics 6 novembre 2014
Par Matt Morgan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I am a weak (at best) artist and as time has permitted I have looked for resources to help me improve. I was excited when I had the opportunity to look at this book and it has exceeded my expectations - expectations that have been set by the many other books I have seen on the subject of painting. Most other books I have seen on the subject of painting have been little more than portfolios of others’ works, but this book goes into techniques, materials and more in a form that even the rank beginner can grasp.

First off I should say that this book is absolutely gorgeous. It is packed full of full-color photographs and illustrations, not just of completed or partial paintings but also charts, photographs of supplies and studios and so much more. Aside from being an instructional manual on painting with acrylic paint it makes a beautiful coffee table book.

The author goes into some explanation of what makes acrylic paint special and how to work with it. She provides a good comparative chart highlighting the differences between acrylic paint, oils and watercolors as well as a chart that shows a quick comparison/contrast between 9 different popular types of paint. She explains what to look for on paint labels, what additives and mediums are available and the advantages of each and more. From there she gives countless techniques on how to be successful with acrylic paint.

There are six main chapters in this book: “About Acrylics”, “Materials and Equipment”, “The Foundation”, “Acrylic Painting Techniques”, “Expressing Form and Surface” and finally “Be a Pro”. Each chaper is further broken down into smaller bite-sized chunks that may be as short as a page and highlight a specific concept or technique.

What I appreciate most about this book is that it covers even the most basic and simple concepts and does not make any assumptions about the skill or experience levels of the reader. Someone with no knowledge of acrylic paints can pick up this book and learn something. And, everything is presenting in terms that are not insulting or condescending to the beginner but not beneath the experienced artist either. The author did an excellent job of writing to her audience.

Painting in Acrylics is an excellent and gorgeous book on the subject of painting with acrylic paints. It is a book suited for beginners and seasoned artists as well and has a place with anyone wanting to know more about acrylic paints and improving their skills. It is so much more than a portfolio book (of which there is already an abundance) and is a superb choice if you want to work with acrylic paints.

HASH(0x8ad5d450) étoiles sur 5 A Masterful Art Instruction Book for the 21st Century 9 novembre 2014
Par Theseus - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This is a splendid, detailed, intelligent, helpful, and beautiful book.

The book itself is both beautiful and practical: a sturdy, square-ish, hefty thing with a strong binding. You can prop it open to any page -- even get a little rough with it -- and you will do no damage. The quality of the illustrations here puts earlier painting instruction books to shame. The images here are clear, vibrant and expressive. They're loaded with texture. They teach you stuff.

However, the joys of this book are not merely those of layout or design -- this is a masterfully complete resource for working with acrylics. There are something like 50 "Technique Files" which show you in a very detailed fashion techniques you can use to produce certain effects. And the work here is highly acryllic-based, telling you what you should and shouldn't expect of this medium.

HASH(0x8a87e750) étoiles sur 5 It is, actually, an indispensable guide. 19 novembre 2014

My daughter, who took several art classes in college including an acrylics course, took an (incorrect) guess that this book retails at close to 100 dollars. This, because it is just that comprehensive: she and her younger siblings (we are an artsy household) were wowed over the scope of what is covered here: not just painting technique but as good a unit on color theory as I have ever seen (as a knitter and sometimes knitting teacher, I’ve seen a few), detailed instructions on creating your own art canvas, and supplies/organizational guidance for the home studio. For the professional, there is everything from how to sign and photograph your art to framing and shipping, and even advice on getting your artwork showed and noticed.

The author shows a marked preference for using realism and hyper-realism for her topic illustrations, a choice which reflects her own background as a celebrated artist in several media. Her credentials and experience enlighten but do not get in the way of the topics presented. That part, perhaps, should be a given, but _Paining in Acrylics_ takes a meticulous, scholarly approach, and too often scholarly books are also brag books for the academics who write them. (Well, I guess this is a brag book insofar as a considerable slice of her portfolio is reproduced on these pages, but they are there strictly to support explication of technique.)

As a person without too many artistic bones in the skeleton, I’m glad to have this reference for my younger children, who are now exploring various physical and digital media for their own art. These pages glow with pure love for and mastery of acrylic painting possibilities. There are images you will swear are photographic, and it’s not just educational, but magical – even after you’ve seen the “trick” deconstructed in a series of carefully explained panels.

HASH(0x8a87e66c) étoiles sur 5 Geared toward serious and professional artists 20 novembre 2014

This is a master's course in painting with acrylics and when they say it's comprehensive, they really mean it. It's written specifically for the serious or professional artist and covers every aspect of painting with acrylics. The author specializes in gorgeous realistic works that really show the potential for the clear, bright colors only possible with this medium. This is book is an investment that the serious painter should definitely make. No matter how good you are, you'll still find something new here this book. The color in the book is gorgeous and there are many inspirational examples of gorgeous effects that can be achieved by understanding the the nuances of working with the unique properties of acrylics.

HASH(0x8a87e75c) étoiles sur 5 Absolutely Beautiful Book 1 novembre 2014
Par Peggy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Lorena Kloosterboer is a Dutch-Argentine artist born in the Netherlands in 1962 and currently resides in Antwerp Belgium according to my Google search. Besides this new book, she will release another hardcover book titled "Complete Guide to Painting in Acrylics" on December 30, 2014, (the author has clarified the second book has the same contents with a different publisher for the UK and Australian market). She is drawn to realism specializing to create paintings in the trompe l'oeil and photorealism styles.The trompe l'oeil style, (French for "deceive the eye"), is is an art technique that uses realistic imagery to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions. Photorealism is a genre of art in which an artist studies a photograph and then attempts to reproduce the image as realistically as possible in another medium. This artist excels at both. I encourage you to search the web for her artwork. You will be amazed and that's when I understood how she was using those same skills to write this detailed and practical book to benefit all who have an interest to learn to paint.

This beautiful book says it is the indispensable guide and I have to agree. This book offers 6 major chapters and 65 technique files. It covers everything from buying paint supplies to stretching a canvas and so much more. There are so many topics for the beginner that I was not informed of when I took art classes years ago. I now wish I had been since it would definitely have changed my skill level and enjoyment of the process. I still have all of my art supplies for painting and matting, which now I feel compelled to use. This includes old acrylic paint which I'm fairly certain is unusable and my watercolor paints which hopefully are still okay. After many attempts of water color art which a friend of mine put on her refrigerator as a joke, (and others thought it was her children's work), I felt acrylics were the most forgiving for my talent level and more economical than oil painting.

This colorful book is very generous with artwork examples of various artists and general pictures of various supplies and techniques. I mean this author tells you how to select and use all supplies. It is truly a pleasure to read and time zooms by as you are doing so. This book would make a great gift for the budding artist at the junior high level to someone like me who is middle-aged and now has time available to devote to a hobby. Chapter 6 is about being a Pro, so I hope my brush in hand will aspire to perform that well. In the area I reside there are several well respected art shows for local and national talent. Maybe one day my work would be accepted....
