Description

This detailed guide to abstract painting teaches you how to compose dramatic, beautiful, thought provoking and evocative abstract paintings. It provides information about the background, aims and procedures of the abstract method, focusing on creativity and self-expression, the goal being the development of the reader's own talents. There are no step-by-step instructions; instead the reader will learn where to find inspiration, how to develop ideas, how to create spontaneous, lively effects and how to apply a range of techniques on different surfaces, whether it be transparent watercolour or thickly applied acrylics.
