   schema:description "Michael Rocco's methods are simple - gentle blends, delicate washes, drybrush, stippling, glazing, scrubbing away. But the results are incredible ... lifelike textures that he uses to translate everyday objects and scenes into remarkably realistic paintings. In this book, Rocco will show you how to create textures and effects that will add depth, weight and "realness" to your art. Step by step, you'll learn how to achieve: natural textures ... apple tree leaves, bare branches, clumpy earth, feathers, stone, morning clouds, tall grass, trees, wildflowers; man-made textures ... barn siding, bright metal, old brick, old metal, painted wood, rusted metal; light and shadow textures ... flowing water, moonlit snow, reflections, snow shadows, sunlit people; and still life textures ... dark glass, draped cloth, glazed crockery, rope, stained glass, wicker. In eleven complete step-by-step demonstrations, you'll see how you can use these and many other textures - woven baskets, icy ponds, the sheen of a horse's coat - to bring your paintings to life."@en ;
