If you are 'Drawn to Colour' then this collection of images offers a fine art approach to you as a colourist. Rather than a uniform dark line to fill in, each unique still life has been arranged and photographed within the studio and then hand drawn in pencil. Printed in grey, this gives a natural delicacy to the drawings enabling you to create expressive, beautiful and personal artwork.
The Constant Artist brings you 16 drawings, traced from original still life compositions. Each is printed with greyscale guides, hints, tips & suggestions on the facing pages. The drawing plates are printed on one side only so you may remove them to frame if desired.
The old masters in workshops across Europe would have had numerous studio assistants working to their behest mixing pigments and painting drapes etc. while the artist decided on subject matter and colour. Think of this book and website as your studio assistants - there to enable you to create your own work of art.
A collection of 50 illustrations for you to color. The 50 illustrations in this book are based on nature and wildlife, with particular attention being paid to flora and fauna. You will find a variety of illustrations for your coloring pleasure, including flowers, plants, abstract patterns and animals. I hope you get as much enjoyment from coloring them as I did from generating them.
Being the only place in the northern North Atlantic yielding late Cainozoic terrestrial sediments rich in plant fossils, Iceland provides a unique archive for vegetation and climate development in this region. This book includes the complete plant fossil record from Iceland spanning the past 15 million years. Eleven sedimentary rock formations containing over 320 plant taxa are described. For each flora, palaeoecology and floristic affinities within the Northern Hemisphere are established. The exceptional fossil record allows a deeper understanding of the role of the "North Atlantic Land Bridge" for intercontinental plant migration and of the Gulf Stream-North Atlantic Current system for regional climatic evolution. 'Iceland sits as a "fossil trap" on one of the most interesting biogeographic exchange routes on the planet - the North Atlantic. The fossil floras of Iceland document both local vegetational response to global climate change, and more importantly, help to document the nature of biotic migration across the North Atlantic in the last 15 million years. In this state-of-the-art volume, the authors place sequential floras in their paleogeographic, paleoclimatic and geologic context, and extract a detailed history of biotic response to the dynamics of physical change.' Bruce H. Tiffney, University of California, Santa Barbara 'This beautifully-illustrated monograph of the macro- and microfloras from the late Cenozoic of Iceland is a worthy successor to Oswald Heer's "Flora fossilis arctica". Its broad scope makes it a must for all scientists interested in climatic change and palaeobiogeography in the North Atlantic region. It will remain a classic for years to come.' David K. Ferguson, University of Vienna
