Beginner's Guide to Abstract Art : Making abstract art in watercolour, acrylics, mixed media and collage Paperback

Description

The Beginner's Guide to Abstract Art is an inspirational but practical book that will help artists to paint in a less figurative way.

Laura Reiter demonstrates different ways to approach an abstract painting from `just a little bit abstract' to `completely abstract'.

She does this by focussing on ideas and themes as starting points, looking at the creative processes involved and more unusual techniques.

Laura Reiter also covers how to use materials creatively - watercolour, acrylics, mixed media and collage - and how to experiment with colour and composition.

There is also details on texture, simple printing, mark making, colour and its meaning, and sources of inspiration.

Several projects are included, and, in addition to Laura's vibrant, colourful paintings, the work of several other contemporary abstract artists is featured. Previously published in hardback as Painting Accessible Abstracts.
