Item description for How to Paint & Draw Motorcycles by Eric Herrmann...
How exactly does Eric Herrmann create the wonderful two-wheeled images that hang everywhere from bank lobbies to biker garages? Eric uses the first chapters to explain what he uses for paint, brushes, canvas, and why. The bulk of this book is made up of chapters built around a series of famous Eric Herrmann images. Find out where Eric found the inspiration for Dangerous, Wired or Crank_n, how he planned each image, and how the image developed on canvas. Part biography and part hands-on how-to manual, Eric uses one chapter to document the creation of a painting, brush stroke by brush stroke. Sequential photos illustrate each step of the painting process. This great all-color book is both a must-have for Eric's fans, and a very useful teaching tool for aspiring artists.

Artists and gearheads alike will love this book Dec 28, 2006
This book is a personal accounting of the art of painting bikes by one of the world's top motorcycle fine artists. It's great if you're a motorcyle enthusiast or an artist looking for inspiration.
There are no magical step-by-step how to lists in this book. If you're looking for a more instructional piece, this isn't that kind of book. However, it covers things in a more general way that leaves approach and specific technique open for the artist to discover and explore on their own, which is the best way.
What it does cover is the overall planning and preparation process for several paintings, as well as some information on reproduction. It's also a book that you can return to over time and continue to get good stuff out of, whether you're looking to enjoy some good reading or incorporate new ideas into your own artistic process.
