Clear, challenging and inspiring, Painting Abstracts: Ideas, Projects and Techniques contains instructions for 65 abstract paintings that artists can get to work on straightaway, with no previous experience. All the basic information relating to picture elements, composition, theme and design is provided at the start of the book. Further explored is the meaning of abstract painting, and its importance as a means of self-expression and creativity.
Rather than providing step-by-step instructions, each of the exercises consists of information on method, materials, technique, composition, imagery and structure that will direct the artist to the finished piece, while at the same time allowing their creativity to flow.
