Book Description
Pastel - an enduring medium. What is it about pastel that has captivated, engaged and inspired countless artists through the ages? Since the Renaissance, pastel has become renowned as a medium of endurance, as it does not contain the liquid binding agent that causes other media like oil, acrylic and watercolour to crack, change colour or consistency with age. As it's a dry medium, it has to be protected either by the use of spray fixative, or, ideally put behind glass in a frame. As pastels have an unusually high pigment content they also keep their jewel like brilliance over the centuries, provided they are kept out of direct sunlight. Pastels are made from pigment, chalk, gum Arabic and distilled water, mixed into a paste which is rolled into sticks then left to dry naturally. Once the liquid content has evaporated, they are ready to use. There are various densities of pastel, varying greatly from brand to brand but usually the most highly pigmented will give the softest butter-like consistency that many artists love to work with. Pastels were first used in the 16th century and became increasingly popular during the 18th and 19th centuries, with artists such as Degas, Renoir, Lautrec and Whistler, to name but a few, creating wonderfully enduring drawings and paintings in pastel. It was however, Venetian artist Rosalba Carriera, who had pastels made for her from pure pigment - sometimes even experimenting with pigments mixed with crushed sea shells! She produced amazingly life-like portraits in pastel and became the 'go-to' artist to have one's portrait painted by. She certainly helped bring pastel to the forefront as a new medium for the artists of Europe. At present, pastel appears to be enjoying a renaissance and a resurgence in popularity with many pastel societies springing up worldwide. I hope this book and it's beautiful paintings will inspire the reader to explore this wonderfully expressive medium."

Book Description
Photography can be anything to anyone!There are no rules, there is no right or wrong!It is our personal interpretation!It can consume our total being as we see life through a lens. Everywhere we look we see our next shot, or one that we want to create. At least, this is how it is to me.This book is a collection of International photographers, all giving a brief insight into their lives, their work, their style, their likes and dislikes. Their story, on how they began and where they are going. Each story will vary and give us a brief insight into who they are, as photographers.Whether you are an amateur or professional, (and there is a discussion in that itself) we will all see something different in the same view, vista or face. Whatever camera you use, it really doesn't matter - if it's what makes you happy then that's fine. There are always discussions, sometimes a little heated, about the best make of camera, the best lens for specific subjects, and such conversations can be interesting. However, it is all about our personal preferences, and that varies so much. There is no one definitive answer. The same goes for the film verses digital argument - it is about personal preference and your ultimate goal.What motivates any of us'.....how did we start on our journey'.......I dare say I could write an entire book on this alone. Some people discover their interest at a young age, maybe having been given an old camera as a present. Others may have come to photography much later in life. Many will remember the days of film, when every shot had to count as film was not cheap. Reloading film throughout a shoot, pockets full of film, the long wait while the film was developed, unless you did this yourself. The smell of developing fluid, fiddling around in a dark room for hours on end. For many, film was the 'real' art of photography and indeed is still in use today by some. Personally I must have been one of the last people to convert to digital, a bit of a stick in the mud, believing that 'this modern digital stuff' will never catch on"! Ha ha, well I have been well and truly proved wrong!What is it that you want to achieve ? Maybe a classic shot, beautifully composed with perfect exposure or maybe something a little more off the wall. Even intentional movement to create a specific 'effect'....... some like this, it started as a mistake and then presented as if it's meant to be. It may not please some, but then we all like different types of photography. The age old argument of 'what constitutes art' amongst artists has been around as long as I can remember, and this can also be applied to photography. In this digital age, making composites or adjusting photographs quite considerably using a variety of software divides opinions.......is this still a photograph as we understand it? The choice of software we use to adjust, enhance, and in some cases, totally change a photograph so it barely resembles the initial image. .The rule of thirds......well it's familiar to all of us, but to call it a 'rule' is a bit of an exaggeration .......more of a guide, again, it depends on what you are out to achieve.Live dangerously......break the rules!The rule of thirds.....break that too!There is no right or wrong!Most of all.....ENJOY YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY !!Barbara Roberts.

Book Description
When talking to people about Landscape Art, or rather when people ask me what kind of art I most like to produce and I answer "Landscapes", I am almost always met with a half-smile and a glazed look in their eyes! I think this is probably because a lot of people who don't really appreciate or study art forms believe landscape art to be boring and dull, and a bit of a 'safe' option. As this beautiful book will loudly declare, this is not the case at all, and the originality, variety and skill shown here will certainly change their point of view!Landscape Art generally is art that depicts an area of land - makes sense doesn't it? But that isn't all - far from it. It can include landforms such as mountains, hills, rivers, lakes and the sea, as well as trees and other plants and flowers - but it can also include vehicles, buildings and structures such as bridges.As well as Landscape Art depicting nature in its most beautiful and dramatic form, it can be a pleasing background for people and animals, as well as buildings, and indeed this was the case for centuries when Western artists only put landscapes in the background of their portraits or still life compositions, or as a setting for human activity, with an historical or religious message.Landscape Art wasn't really taken seriously in the West until the 16th Century, after the era of Renaissance Art, unlike Chinese art which included Landscape Art as an established genre by the fourth century. Landscape painting did not really come into its own until the seventeenth century with the rise of the Dutch and Flemish schools.But I think it wasn't really until the 19th Century that Landscape Art really became widely appreciated. The Norwich School of landscape painters (active c.1803-1830s), founded by John Crome (1768-1821) and John Sell Cotman (1782-1842), extended the Dutch Luminist tradition and produced landscapes, coastal and marine scenes from around Norfolk.Meanwhile, JMW Turner (1775-1851), England's greatest and most original landscape painter, had arrived on the scene. A watercolourist until 1796, he became in 1802 the youngest ever full member of London's Royal Academy. Landscape Art in the 21st Century is very different to how it used to be in the time of the Old Masters. We now have such diversity of Landscape Art to suit all individual tastes, from Fine Art, Digital Art, Photographic Art, Impressionist Art, Abstract Art and Naive Art to Surrealism and many other art forms. An absolute feast!How very glad I am that Landscape Art is now so widely acclaimed and recognised as a major contribution to the overall art scene. Landscape Art can be uplifting and soothing to the soul, and in this wonderful book, you will see just how beautiful, and diverse, Landscape Art really is.Look, Absorb, Read, but most of all Enjoy!

Book Description
This is the the core of this book. When is a picture of a naked man art and when it is better to call it pornography? For many people the limit is a male nude with an erect penis. That is not my opinion. An erection is a biological consequence of excitement. Excitement is an emotion, as well as fear, anger, pride and joy, with expressions such as laughing, crying, screaming. Due to an age-old taboo, that mainly is imposed by Christianity in the Western world, sexual excitement is viewed outside the group of accepted visible emotions. I would like to point to the question why the male nude is still not fully accepted and often so difficult to sell. To the large crowd male nudity is still too much attached to homosexuality and many people, especially men, are afraid to be placed in boxes by showing interest. I regularly notice that at exhibitions and art fairs. It would be nice if the naked man in the art could come out of the box of the Gay Art and be more generally valued, as it is with naked women in the art for centuries. Hopefully, this book contributes to the debate on this issue."
