A Breath of Fresh Air,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Creative Paint Workshop for Mixed-Media Artists: Experimental Techniques for Composition, Layering, Texture, Imagery, and Encaustic (Spiral-bound)
I only received this yesterday and already I love it.
Inside are all sorts of mixed media techniques for paints that you can adapt according to which materials you use and what you like.
For those who like written instructions they are clear, simple and easy to follow. The visuals show a step by step process that makes it very obvious what to do.
You could reproduce every project in the book exactly as you see it, or you could use the techniques to do something entirely different.
Creative books lately seem to fall into 2 catergories; wishy washy 'dealing with not actually being creative but wanting to be' for beginners, and 'high-brow arty books that insist you have to do everything by the rules' for art students.
This is neither. It's all good cold hard facts about how things work and what you can do with them to mix them up and create original pieces of artowrk. It's a real mish-mash of getting your hands dirty and using simple products in a new way.
