Amy Schoeman
R495 R455 Discovery Miles 4 550 Save R40 (8%) Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

Epic Land is a celebration in pictures and words of the arresting beauty of the landscapes of Namibia and of the centrality of land in the culture, history, politics and daily lives of its people. The book seeks to uncover the rare essence that marks the landscape of Namibia apart from all others.

Few countries in the world are richer than Namibia in its canvas of natural beauty. The landscape is one of rich and often harsh contrast with many changing moods. A journey through its landscape is infinitely rewarding. Within this book this progression is depicted. The dramatic scenery of remote deserts, mountains, mystical trees and stormy shores are the equal of any.

Through her captivating photographs and absorbing text, Amy Schoeman shares with the reader the strange beauties of her life’s passion. The superb photographs capture the life of the desert, its forms and colours, and the moods of its ever-changing landscapes.

Monique Day-Wilde 1
R210 Discovery Miles 2 100 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

Inkleurboeke vir volwassenes is steeds baie gewild en daar is eindelose opsies om van te kies en keur. Inligting oor selfdoentegnieke wanneer dit by inkleur kom, is egter nie so volop beskikbaar nie. In hierdie boek deel inkleurkunstenaar, Monique Day-Wilde, alles van die kies van papier, potlode en ander inkleurmateriale, tot die teorie van kleur en kleurvermenging. Sy deel ook basiese en meer gevorderde tegnieke vir spesiale effekte, en wat jy dan met jou inkleurprente kan doen. Leer oor skadutegnieke met enkele of 'n verskeidenheid kleure, afskerming, meng- en vryftegnieke, skep van tekstuur, interessante maniere om groot agtergronde te vul, byvoeging van blinkgoed, stempels met bosseleervloeistof en selfs die gebruik van potloodskaafsels. Daar skuil soveel meer agter inkleurwerk as om net tussen die lyne te hou. Terwyl daar werklik geen regte of verkeerde manier is om in te kleur nie, sal hierdie boek jou help om inkleurwerk te omskep in 'n ervaring wat sal lei tot 'n kunswerk waarop jy kan trots wees - net vir jouself, of om mee te spog by ander.

R173 Discovery Miles 1 730 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

This book takes you beyond the traditional boundaries of muted, delicate and translucent watercolour to create rich, vivid images, not only with watercolour on paper, but with other media and materials, while still retaining a watery feel and enhancing and expanding the possible textural effects. The projects showcase a mix of water media in familiar and unconventional, experimental ways. These include paint, ink, coloured pencils and fabric dye, with texture mediums forming part of the repertoire. While watercolour paper is used a fair amount, canvases, board and drafting paper or vellum are also incorporated. Some really simple, structured techniques have been covered, which can be followed step by step to achieve a very similar outcome and are suitable for crafty projects. Readers are also encouraged to use the more spontaneous and less controlled techniques (illustrated step by step), to further their own creative path, develop a sense of adventure, learn to take risks and work with their 'happy accidents'. There are lots of things one can do with unsuccessful work and the author has included ideas for incorporating discarded endeavours into new art work. Filled with fabulous ideas for both artists and crafters, even the absolute beginner will be able to play and experiment along with Water marks.

Calder - The Conquest of Time: The Early Years: 1898-1940 (Hardcover): Jed Perl Calder - The Conquest of Time: The Early Years: 1898-1940 (Hardcover)
Jed Perl
R876 R804 Discovery Miles 8 040 Save R72 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The first biography of America's greatest twentieth-century sculptor. In this beautifully written, deeply researched book Jed Perl shows how Alexander Calder became an avant-garde artist with enduring appeal. One of our most beloved modern artists, Calder is celebrated above all as the inventor of the mobile. Only now is the full story of his life being told in a gloriously illustrated biography, which features unseen photographs and is based on scores of interviews and unprecedented access to Calder's papers. Born into a family of artists, Calder forged important friendships with a who's who of twentieth-century masters, including Joan Miro, Marcel Duchamp, Georges Braque, and Piet Mondrian. His early years studying engineering were followed by artistic triumphs in Paris in the late 1920s, and his emergence as a leader in the international abstract avant-garde. His marriage in 1931 to Louisa James-- a great-niece of Henry James--is a richly romantic story. This transatlantic life carries readers from New York's Greenwich Village, to the Left Bank of Paris during the Depression, and then to a refugee-filled London just before the War, where Calder's circle of friends included Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson and Kenneth Clark.

Frank Westerman; Translated by Daniel Hugo
R239 Discovery Miles 2 390 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

As negentienjarige ryloper in Spanje beland Frank Westerman toevallig in die dorpie Banyoles, waar ’n opgestopte “Kalahari-Boesman”, slegs bekend as El Negro, uitgestal word. Sy indrukke bly hom by – en wanneer hy dekades later weer van El Negro lees, die keer in ’n Franse koerant, is dit die begin van ’n ondersoeksreis wat belangrike vrae oor rasopvattings en die Westerse beskawing na vore bring. Wie was hierdie naamlose man? Wat se sy opgestopte “museumteenwoordigheid” oor Europese denke oor slawerny, rassisme en kolonialisme – en bied hy slegs ’n spieel op ’n vergange tyd, of ook op die hede?
