This book is not only for ""painters"" but for all types of creative individuals who want to experience and play with watercolor, whether their background is mixed-media, textile art, journaling, or paper craft. Unlike the typical watercolor text books, this unique, beautiful volume is a field book of inspiration, creative ideas, how to's, and projects, all from an artist's perspective. Each creative exercise features a technique, shows step-by-step photographs, and includes a clever idea for a gift or project that can be made from the painted samples.
Studio artist Smith Jones presents a new kind of art how-to book, in which she tackles many of the intangibles of the creative process but from a practical point of view. She is not constrained by any one medium, and she encourages readers to stretch beyond their boundaries. Various drawing, watercolor, and collage materials, as well as different methods, subject matters, and ways to display completed work, are discussed. This book will appeal to artists who want to rekindle their creative spirit, and it could inspire hobbyists and scrapbookers to take a next step. (c) Copyright 2011.
