Your Painting Questions Answered from A-Z Summary

Your Painting Questions Answered from A-Z by Helen Van Wyk

The major bulk of Helen Van Wyk's illustrious career was devoted to teaching others the principles and fundamentals of painting. Consequently, her students came away from her classes with a profound understanding of the elements that made their paintings look credible. Many of her students went on to teach in their own right, just as Helen had done at the age of eighteen when she came out from under the protective (and critical) wing of her mentor, M. A. Rasko. And now, we have compiled the most-asked questions by students of Helen's over her forty-year teaching career. Some of the questions you will find answers to: How are reflections in water and tables painted? How is a background painted smoothly? Why shouldn't I use black? What are the many oil painting mediums? When are they used? How did the Old Masters use glazes? What are the most common mistakes in composition? How can I make a copy that's exactly like a photo or painting? What colors would I need to paint white subjects? How can I paint textures that are shiny and dull?
