A mixed media must-have!
on 12 June 2013
I've been a fan of Chris Cozen and Julie Prichard's art and online teaching for a long time and really been looking forward to their book, which far surpassed my expectations! I love the fact that it's spiral bound within a hard cover because this will be a "working" book for me, so the convenience of it being durable and opening flat is a real bonus.
It's jam-packed with techniques to try, so if you're new to mixed media, the projects are exciting and inspiring. Having enjoyed mixed media for some time, my mind is buzzing with variations and ideas I want to experiment with, so this book is definitely going to stretch me as an artist.
The content is beautifully photographed throughout; the different stages of the techniques demonstrated are very clearly illustrated and easy to follow. Moreover, aside from being a user-friendly working book, I also value it as a coffee-table book to flick through and enjoy the photos of Chris and Julie's art. Win:win!
