Overview
Showing that, contrary to popular belief, abstract painting does possess rules, this guide lays the groundwork of well-defined techniques that keep abstract artworks within the confines of clear expression. Helping artists evolve from the formal structures of representational painting--such as cityscapes, still life, and portraiture--toward a more adventurous notion of representation, this resource combines step-by-step techniques with a gallery of finished pieces to offer aspiring artists equal parts instruction and inspiration. Emphasizing color above all else, this manual explores the application of textures, using both opposing color shades as well as opposing color temperatures, for an amazing array of shapes that refer back to the original inspiration.
