Artist to Artist: Inspiration and Advice from Artists Past and Present, By Clint Brown and Cheryl McLean
Artist to Artist brings together more than one thousand quotations from artists on 57 subjects ranging from creativity to solitude, technique to talent. Clint Brown drew these quotations from years of reading about art and artists, most especially works in the artist’s own words. The result is a wealth of witty, wise, thought provoking, and inspiring words from Old Masters such as Leonardo daVinci, Michelangelo, and Titian; Impressionists such as Monet, Degas, Renoir, Matisse, and van Gogh; and modern masters from Pablo Picasso and Henry Moore to Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg. Arranged alphabetically by subject, with an index to help readers find quotes by individual artists, the book creates a sort of ongoing dialogue among the 207 artists represented. Available in paperback or hard cover.

Drawing From Life, By Clint Brown
The leading textbook for figure-drawing classes, Drawing From Life provides a clear, comprehensive, and thought-provoking guide to drawing the human form for anyone interested in exploring this time-honored artistic tradition. For centuries, drawing the human figure has given artists the tools and vocabulary for creating paintings, sculpture, drawings, or prints from Renaissance classical to contemporary expression. Drawing from Life takes a natural, progressive approach to drawing the figure beginning with quick gesture sketches to attune the artist’s eye, providing techniques for mastering the difficult elements of proportion and perspective, exploring the expressive use of line and value, examining the anatomy of the human form and its influence on structure and gesture, and ending with an invigorating discussion of the predominant approaches to using the figure in art today. The wealth of exquisite drawings from master artists through the ages supports the concepts presented in the text.
Among the Third Edition’s highlights:
• Clearly explained techniques for mastering the art of figure drawing.
• Studio exercises that provide direction for developing your expertise and
• Guidance and encouragement for becoming your own best critic.
