I feel so excited to have been invited to contribute a foreword to the latest edition of Pip Seymour’s excellent guide to pigments for painters, The Artist’s Handbook (published by Lee Press, 2020). Pip is the renowned artisan paintmaker who, along with Rebecca Seymour, is responsible for the stunning range of fine art materials produced in Yorkshire by Wallace Seymour.

The Artist’s Handbook provides artists with in-depth, practical information on the materials, equipment and skills necessary for all areas of artistic practice. Topics covered include advice on how to select appropriate art materials, including paints, brushes, canvases and drawing materials; techniques for making your own paints, glue, varnishes and paper; advice on how to achieve the best results from both manufactured and hand-made materials; the best methods of storing and preserving finished artworks, and health and safety precautions.

The Artist’s Handbook is now in stock at L. Cornelissen & Son
