50 Inspirational ProjectsUnknown - 2011
Abstract artists aim to make unseen ideas visible, and this inspiring guidebook collects 50 abstract exercises for painters looking to expand their abilities and build their expressive repertoires. From purely conceptual compositions to emblematic interpretations of real objects, instructor Rolina van Vliet offers concrete insights into how each project moves from an assemblage of brushstrokes into an expressive idea. Accompanying each exercise are numerous detailed photographs that demonstrate the application of various media and methods, showing paintings that range from atmospheric, textured, and nuanced to raw, powerful, and vibrant. The accompanying buying guide provides artists with additional advice on choosing supplies and other materials.
