Starting this week off with a twist, a short (yet serious enough) book review.
This book has brought me so much sharing is a must.
This is quite simply The BOOK that changed my approach to composition.
The book that brought me up a whole new level as an artist able to understand composition.
A definite reference and "forever book" for any artist looking to acquire more knowledge and take the right steps in getting there.
The one element I particularly enjoy is the layout: carefully thought through and user-friendly. This adds heaps to the enjoyment of learning something that can be down right boring. Roberts keeps all the elements he wants us to discover flowing smoothly and effortlessly on well written, illustrated and printed pages.
This edition also comes with a cd. A great wee bonus to help highlight and clarify the content of the manuscript by visually illustrating all of the essentials explained.
Since reading Ian Robert's book, I find myself frequently referring back to it, finding inspiration, finding new answers.
Just in the same keen way Katherine Tyrell indirectly recommended this read to me on her blog http://makingamark.blogspot.com , I am adding my own support and enthusiasm.
Most definately highly recommended.
