You will love this book if:

  • You want to learn how to break down boundaries and limitations in your art
  • You are looking for techniques in watercolor, acrylic, and other mediums
  • You need advice from contemporary artists to improve your artwork

Author Mary Todd Beam will teach you how to find your creative theme and love it while exploring new techniques and mediums. Through 25 creative techniques, you’ll experiment with new areas in the painting process and discover what you are capable of when you push your limits. Learn why you choose a certain pigment, technique, or style to become empowered to make stronger statements of your own.

In the Creative Edge you will find:

  • Insight from Mary Todd Beam and guest artists that share their own insight and ideas about artistic expression and the creative process
  • Instruction on color, texture, and design and how to infuse symbols and metaphors of special significance to you
  • Inspiration to slice through old habits and self-imposed limitations

A Word from the Author
In this book, I’ve included the work of artists who, in my opinion, are masters or masters in the making. It’s hard to tell the difference. I hope you’ll be as inspired by them as I am. I’ve also shown you new ways to become totally involved in the painting process, ways to interpret your own life and see the world in a new way. My goal is to give you a few tools to help your artistic voice speak loudly and clearly.” –Mary Todd Beam
