Refresh your knowledge on the elements of art, principles of design, and find inspiration to create your own personal style!

Cultivate the skills necessary for expressionism and find a new approach to perspective painting. From acrylics to oil, pastels to water-soluble pencils, you will not feel stuck in your exploration of art. Artist Annie O’Brien Gonzales helps you find personal color palette that will come alive in your painting.

The book is set up as a walk through the art realm—you start out with the basics, with the elements and principles, but the refresher of techniques is later used in the numerous projects that Annie creates for you to try out and experiment with. This is useful because you can play with color without fear of making a mistake, test out bold textures to see their different effects, and loosen up your line-work.

This Book Features:

  • 10 step-by-step projects: floral, landscape, and still life paintings
  • Over twenty in-depth techniques covering gelli plate printing, color schemes and mixing charts, and creating collage materials
  • Mixed-media ideas that give rise to inspiration boards, painting notes, and underpainting

The book also talks about an important concept to creating pure art—passion. Your hands hold the skill, your eyes the vision, and your heart the passion. Bring all three together with Bold Expressive Painting. Floral and landscape paintings can easily look similar in different artwork. But here, the design is rooted in your perspective. Take ownership of your painting and learn mixed-media skills to develop an intricate composition. The dynamic designs and endless ideas are yours for the taking!
