ART BOOKS

I Know An Artist

Susie Hodge

This intriguing book is an eclectic collection of information about a wide variety of artists from the usual suspects, such as Monet, Degas, Warhol and Emin, to many less well-known names. Alone, each relatively short entry provides a concise introduction to its subject and condenses the thrust of their oeuvre as well as facts about their life. In some cases, you might find the entry frustratingly short; elsewhere you may be glad not to have to wade through more information than you really need. And that’s the secret of the book’s success: it’s an introduction, not a full-on course in art history and appreciation. What Susie also does is to show connections – who influenced who and was, in their turn, influenced. Now, the book becomes an intriguing tale that will have you following links and references that guide you through what can easily be a complicated labyrinth.

There are also demonstrations on how to paint buildings, capture the texture of fur when painting animals, how to create a simple but dramatic linocut and showing why oils are great for developing still-life compositions in the studio. Seasoned exhibitor Nicholas Poullis offers advice on how to give yourself the best chance of selling your work, Steve Hall urges you to step out of your comfort zone and try a new medium and Haidee-Jo Summers encourages you to take up the #DrawingAugust challenge.
