Abstract Painting concepts and techniques uncovers the secrets used to create great abstract paintings.
Students and professional artists can now start building on the techniques of the great abstract artists to create their own innovative work. Two clear, comprehensible sections let artists focus quickly on their specific areas of interest. The first section, on Traditional Painterly Abstraction (brush and easel painting) looks at pictorial space, brushwork, paint quality, and collage. The second section, on Post-Painterly Modern Abstraction (non-easel painting), considers options ranging from the pour and spatter techniques of Jackson Pollock to the staining, scraping, and abrading of modern acrylic artists. Step by step key approaches show every artist how to get the best aesthetic results, helping them to move forward philosophically.
