This book does exactly what the title says. It is the nearest thing to being on an actual course in the classroom. The only thing you can't have is a critique of your work from the author! It is suitable for mixed abilities from beginner to more advanced. By the end, most people should be well on their way to producing and understanding abstracts. The illustrations are great, with the author giving lots of space for pictures so the painter can see, within the confines of photography and print, texture and colour very clearly. The book is well planned and guides the reader through a series of exercises with ideas for more. A must have for painters who are grappling with the abstract concept.
