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.
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.”
“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.”
