The World’s Most Enjoyable Painting Course. Ever!
Sam Piyasena and Beverly Philp - All books by this author

For anyone who has ever gazed longingly at a set of artist’s paints and brushes in a store and wished that they knew where to begin, this is the book for them. This companion to Barron’s Just Draw It! relies on the belief that anyone can paint, and encourages readers to not only learn, but to experiment and play with their art. Every exercise in this unique manual can be performed by artists at all levels of training and ability.
  • All exercises are designed to inspire, motivate, and break down any fears about painting
  • Covers a variety of techniques and approaches to expand and improve painting skills
  • A powerfully effective art course that never feels like a set of tedious drills
Lessons cover a number of subjects, including color, tone, light and shade, compositions, textures, patterns, surface, and paint quality. Illustrations on every page in color and black and white.

From the reviews:
“The authors encourage readers to engage actively with creativity. Chapters cover common painting concerns, such as materials, color, and pattern, but the many short step-by-step exercises included often blend the element of surprise with unusual materials or activities or both. … Artists of all abilities can benefit from this entertaining book.”
Library Journal

“Billed in the subtitle as "the world's most enjoyable painting course, ever," this bright, rousing book can be useful to pro and amateur painters alike. The authors intend to "set free your creativity." Some of the activities are so liberating, in fact, that the results are purely accidental. Just Paint It! is loaded with confidence-builders.”
Arts & Activities

“This book takes a wonderfully colorful romp through ideas for painting fun. The volume's design allows you to believe you can take the time to pursue competency with a variety of painting styles.”
Idaho Statesman
