Print & Art Call for Submissions for ‘How to Paint Book’

Flame Tree Publishing LtdLondon, England, United Kingdom

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: December 15, 2016 – We are looking for finished paintings that also have WIPs/step shots – from as few as 2 to up to 8 steps – to include in our book ‘How to Paint’, on a non-exclusive basis. They can be in any medium, including digital, and in any genre or subject, from still lifes and portraits to fantasy and abstract pieces.

Have you recorded the process of your artwork? Show others how it’s done! Get your work shown in How to Paint Made Easy, a new book we’re working on that will provide advice, tips and inspiration to the budding artist.

Like previous books we’ve done we want an exciting and fresh range of artwork, which is why we’re putting this call out.

We aim to provide examples and case studies in all media: acrylic, watercolour, oil and digital; and a range of modern subjects in the key areas of still life, portraits, figures and landscape: from rollerblades and sugar skulls to gritty cityscapes and Manga-style figures, alongside vibrant, realistic portraits.

We need step-by-steps/stages as well as the finished piece – up to 8 steps, but it can be as few as an initial sketch and a mid-way point, each with a short description of what you did at each stage (no more than 40 words per step).

Or instead of finished projects you could send in your own examples of technique – colour mixing, texture, layering, washes, mixed media; composition, perspective; light, shade, movement.

Photos need to be at a resolution of 300dpi at ideally 20cm high (but they will probably work smaller, as most of the time they will only be shown at half that size).

Work will be used on a non-exclusive basis, will be fully credited to the artist and the artist will of course retain their copyright to their work. A license agreement is also put in place to secure the artists’ rights.

We will offer a small fee per project (payable on publication), as well as a free copy of the published book.

If you’re interested, email us: cat@flametreepublishing.com.
