After studying painting and graphic arts, the author and artist, Roland Kuck, specialised in illustration and airbrush art, in particular portrait painting. He works as artistic director and lecturer at the Institute for Training in Arts and Art Therapy in Bochum, Germany. In 2004, he was involved in a charitable collaboration between UNESCO and the Art House Gallery in Bochum, with the slogan 'For more peace, tolerance and democracy in the world'. For this he painted the portraits of many national and international personalities, including Phil Collins, Robin Gibb, the Empress Farah Diba-Pahlavi and the Dalai Lama. Roland Kuck has become well-known through various interviews and presentations on radio and television and through published books including textbooks, as well as educational films.
A method of spraying paint for all levels of artists. Create realistic artwork with the help of this step by step guide. Subjects include flowers, animals and the sea. Includes a DVD and all you need to know about airbrushing from the basics up.-KarenPlatt.co.uk The airbrush has been rather elbowed out by computer graphic techniques lately, but this is a timely reminder that the medium has rather more painterly qualities than pure technology can provide. This new book packs a lot into its 144 pages and, necessarily therefore, skates over a certain amount. Although it's intended to appeal to beginners as well as the more experienced artist, I can't help feeling that a complete tyro would do well to seek out something a little more basic to begin with. Although types of gun and basic techniques are covered, there's no real disguising that this quickly develops into something of a masterclass, with a series of demonstrations that make heavy demands on your technical ability. None of this is to say that this isn't a hugely worthwhile book, and it's also true that the airbrush is a difficult tool to learn and handle, albeit one which repays study and diligence. The accompanying DVD features all the six demonstrations and goes a long way to helping you follow what's going on.-Artbookreview.net If you have an airbrush lurking at the back of your cupboard, this book will give you the confidence to get it out and start playing. Every aspect is covered in full step-by-step detail so you can begin to understand just what this mighty art tool is capable of. With 14 on the inside of the airbrush alone, so you can take it apart safely (and put it back together again). Then move on to basic colour/shape exercises, followed by projects for a lily, waves, rose, frog and ultimately the dog as per the cover. Also included is an excellent DVD showing all the projects as they are being made.-Cake Craft & Decoration
