Award-winning acrylic artist Jo Toye provides you with exciting paintings, in-depth instruction, and playful new concepts so you will never tire of abstract art making. Jo also shares with you the "why" of playing with paints, and throughout the book, explains the follow-up question of "how." From picking different materials you will use to deciding what techniques to employ, your art will have your inspiration and style shine through!

This Book Features:
  • Introduction to concepts and materials
  • Tool kit instruction manual
  • 17 step-by-step demonstrations
  • 8 in-depth projects that cover stenciling, sponging, masking and more
  • Advice on how to achieve productive results from experimentation
  • The book is full of explosive paintings, innovative ideas, and fresh perspectives that will have you trying new ways of applying found objects and paint to your art projects. Lace, glue guns, and sheet protectors quickly become unique and fun stencils—resist the urge to go back to your normal ways of approaching abstract art! You don't need to have an end result in mind to create stunning pieces, but you do need to consider different techniques that maybe you haven't tried before. Jo guides you on this journey of expression so your pieces will become refined and dignified.

    The most vital part to any painting, however, is the attitude you hold while diving into your work. Jo stresses that abstract painting is concerned with playfulness, and that any mistake can quickly turn into a masterpiece, as long as you allow the painting to speak for itself. By working through small and detailed stages of painting, you can document your growth and cultivate your own specific taste and style. With Jo's tips and advice, final touches on your abstract art will reward your experimental journey!
