(News-Outlook photo, Sunny Kramer) BOOKNOOK r,00ws FO d Bath Co. Memorial Library Linda Denton Every once in awhile, you'll find something totally outside books at your local library, so it would behoove you to keep your eyes open when you walk through the doors. If you drop by this month, you'll find a small display of paintings by local artist Eddie Carter. The works in question were done several years ago and recently donated to the library by the artist. Eddie's interest in art began when he was in the sixth grade, but he didn't get into painting until he was an adult. It's never too early or too late to try your hand at art. If you have an interest, a wish, or a talent, give it a shot. Find books, videos, television shows, or people I with some know-how, who can get you started. There are all kinds of media and techniques out there, so keep trying different things, until you see if something clicks for you. The librarians say kids love the Dra_D..L_ Series Step-by-Step Wly 9 Dr'dw by Lee J. Ames. Among the new painting books on the shelves, are two by an artist I've seen on KET recently. If you've seen Donna Dewberrry's shows, you might like to back up what you've learned with her Complete Book of One-Stroke Painting--Ouick and Easy Techniques for Beautiful Designs in Acrylics, or her One Stroke Painting Course. Sueellen Ross is deep into detail, as you'll see when you take a look at her Radiant Realism. Watercolor. Ink and Colored Pencil. Her techniques are very different from those you'll learn from Donna Dewberry, which is part of the point. What works for one artist doesn't always work for anoth- er. If neither of these appeal to you, there are plenty of others to look at. Ray Hendershot's Texture Techniques for Winning Watercolor features another media with yet more ideas. If you find that you love work- ing with watercolor, you'll love this one and will want to explore further with Splash 5. Best of Watercolor. Th Glory of Color. in which "109 of the best contemporary watercolorists show and tell how to enliven our paintings with color." There's also Watercolor Basics, Let's Get Started by Jack Reid, with what look like some pretty simple techniques to get you going, and Painting in Pen and Ink with Watercolor by Claudia Nice, which goes with more detailed work and how to achieve it. Artistic Secrets to Painting Tonal Values by Alex Kedzierski will, among many other things, help you "use thumbnail sketches and under- painting to map out values and com- position." The Complete Drawing and Painting Course, the Artist's Practical Guide to Media and Techniques, say the publishers "removes the bewilder- ing mystique surrounding art, and allows readers to capture a sense of wonder and achievement in their own work at their own pace." The Fine Srts Series Theory_ an0 Practice, Basic Principles and Language of Fine Art hopes to help you broaden your artistic horizons with a study of the work of famous artists and their techniques. Canvas, paper, and wood aren't the only surfaces available now, any more than they were in the past. You can paint on fabric, glass, metal objects, and just about anything else you can think of. Take a look at the Start-a-Craft series get Started in a New Craft with Easy-to-Follow Projects for Beginners, including Melanie Williams' Fabric Painting, Sally Richmond's Decorative , and Ann Witchell's FARMERS MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANY OF MASON COUNTY "Since 1879" Homeowners Farm Properties Mobile Homes Commercial Buildings Churches Call Your Local County Director For Service Lonnie Vice -- 606-674-2734 Bath, Menifee, Montgomery and Clark 1718 US 68 South, Maysville, KY 606-759-5252 Toll Free 800-759-9618 601 Terry Drive Mr. Sterling, KY 40353 Office: (859) 498-4981 Fax: (859) 498-1694 Tommy Gilvin, Principal Broker 859-498-7972 - Home, 859-404-8111 Mobile Sandy Stuart, Associate Broker 859-498-5850 - Home, 859-585-5850 - Mobile 967 Poiksville Road, Bath Co. - Beautiful log home in a nice country setting.
