Art Models 5: Life Nude Photos for the Visual Arts (Art Models series)
Maureen Johnson, Douglas Johnson | 2010 | EPUB, PDF | ISBN: 0981624960 | 232 pages | 8 Mb, 37 Mb
Whether for work on a finished piece, trying a new technique, or getting in some practice time, this figure study enables artists to work when and where they want with their choice of model, pose, and view. The latest in the series features 12 new male and female art models—as well as Becca from the previous book—in a collection of poses selected by readers and visitors to the authors' website. The contrast has also been increased in many of the photos to provide deeper, more challenging shadows. While the guide includes individuals and couples with a wide range of body types in natural, relaxed stances as well as some inspired by classical works of art, the primary focus is on dynamic poses—twisting, scrunching, reaching, and even fighting. Poses are precisely lit, revealing every area of the model, and have been carefully chosen to illustrate important effects such as foreshortening and perspective changes. A judicious amount of photo retouching is done, not to make the models more glamorous or plastic, but to remove distractions that detract from the essence of the models.

Dale Auger, "Medicine Paint: The Art of Dale Auger"
English | ISBN: 1894974751 | 2009 | EPUB | 176 pages | 60 MB
One of Canada's most evocative modern painters, Cree artist Dale Auger was a gifted interpreter of First Nations culture, using the cross-cultural medium of art to portray scenes from the everyday to the sacred and dissemble stereotypes about Indigenous peoples. Auger's striking oil paintings use bold, bright colors to explore the intricate links between spirituality and the natural laws of the land. Birds, beasts and human forms are carried from the dreamworld onto canvas, their spirits channeled through his paintbrush and presented in brilliant yellows, mystic blues, vibrant reds and swirls of black. Infusing his subjects with energy, life and color, Dale Auger masterfully presents scenes that are powerful, spiritual and inspiring. Medicine Paint is a collection of Dale Auger's best work, reproduced in glorious full color and reflecting the evolution of the artist's distinctive style. Including a revealing look back at his life and professional development, the book is a stunning tribute to the master Aboriginal artist.
