Abstracts in Acrylic and Ink : A Playful Painting Workshop

Description

Splatter, stamp, scrape, repeat. A quick-start guide to beautifully layered and textured abstracts!

While there are many approaches to painting abstract art, Jodi Ohl's philosophy is to simply start. In this book, the successful, self-taught artist helps you "dive in with an open mind and fearless heart." Everything inside is geared toward kick-starting your creativity:

An exciting series of 22 fun-to-follow, step-by-step projects.
A tantalizing variety of approaches and inspirations for applying and manipulating paint, crayons, pencils, ink, paper, photos and more.
Quick and loose exercises for building a library of ideas, color palettes, patterns and designs to use in future paintings.
Loads of practical advice, including how to stock your studio without going broke, the five must-haves mediums, and how to finish and protect your artwork.

For beginners eager to get to the "good stuff" and for artists looking to expand their repertoire, it just doesn't get any better.

Every action-packed page will have you trying something new and pushing your boundaries!
