Ground-breaking, nonjudgmental instruction that teaches how to paint everyday objects in a way that creates works of art. Beginners and more experienced painters alike will learn to loosen up as they perfect a fun, expressive way to paint. They will learn a very simple method of painting that makes use of big brushes, lots of acrylic paint and bold, expressive brushstrokes. You will quickly see that "its not about WHAT you paint, its about HOW you paint it." The most common everyday objects can become works of art when painted usng this method. Beginning with basic instructions in composition, color mixing and brush handling, you will learn, step by step, how to capture large shapes and lighting effects rather than small details. You will be encouraged to work quickly and decisively with as few brush strokes as possible, while learning to use color intuitively and boldly. AUTHOR: Patti Mollica is a popular painter, author and art instructor. She has written three books for Walter-Foster, and recently completed two step-by-step instruction videos for 200 colour images
