4.0 out of 5 stars Abstract journey, 27 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Abstracts: Techniques & Textures (Paperback)
Ideal for trying a very wide range of techniques. Great visuals but a pity the artworks were not labelled with a title so you could analyse the thinking behind the paintings

This review is from: Abstracts: Techniques & Textures (Paperback)
Following on from her other two successful books from the same publisher, Rolina shows 50 studies, demonstrating a wide variety of techniques. The paintings include different media such as oil pastel, acrylic, collage, chalk, gels and how to include sand, text and print in your work. 350 images show work in progress and finished work.

This book is a way to build your own visual language following the studies, tips and techniques. Each study involves a task and one or more techniques. Learn how to incorporate texture. This book is for anyone who loves to play with paint. Explore the ideas that speak to you or work through the techniques one by one. Experimentation is a good way to develop your work.

Whet your appetite with this valuable reference. I like browsing through the pages for inspiration rather than just copying the methods described.

Really good book just a shame they can't do a Dvd on every technique. Always puzzling as it would sell like hot cakes.
