Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent introduction to Abstract Art written for the beginner. It is not too deep or superficial and is highly inspirational covering semi-abstract subjects as well. The author is passionate about her subject and this comes across to the reader clearly making you want to have a go. The illustrations are colourful and I especially like the fact that she has show progressions from the Real to the Abstract as well as Abstraction for its own sake.

The only thing that was naughty is that this book is a paperback edition of the hardback book by Laura Reiter called 'Painting Accessible Abstracts' but under a different title and cover. So if you already own this book as I do, you won't need to purchase this edition in paperback. I have today sent my copy back because of this.

Useful guide to different levels of abstraction ...from stylisation to completely abstract. Chapters on design, colour, texture etc. A well-chosen, small, selection of images to illustrate the points being made. Just right to dip an exploratory toe into.
