Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Let your creativity bloom with Expressive Flower Painting! Flowers are one of the most common and beloved subjects for artists. And for new artists, it's almost always one of the first things someone tries to paint--center, petals, stem, voila! The painting exercises and the process shown in this book have a loose, free, contemporary style--one that is very popular with painters and is widely seen in galleries, in shops, and even on clothing and home design goods. It's not intimidating, and yet the paintings are colorful, immediate, and joyful and speak to the artist's desire to play, be loose, and to create freely. Lynn Whipple paints wildly and in small to large formats with a combination of acrylic paint, charcoal, and colorful soft pastel. She usesfresh, abundant flower arrangements as her muse. Expressive Flower Painting presents a range of creative painting exercises that help readers develop vibrant nature paintings. This exciting book is an in-depth expansion of Lynn's class called Big Bold Bloom Wild Painting, with additional content. The book will cover mark making, layering techniques, how to do "spin drawings," color methods, painted backgrounds, working from life, and how to successfully combine a wide variety of media for the maximum effect"-- Provided by publisher.
