Flowers are one of the most common and beloved subjects for artists. And for new artists, it’s almost always one of the first things someone tries to paint–center, petals, stem, voila! The painting exercises and the process shown in this book have a loose, free, contemporary style–one that is very popular with painters and is widely seen in galleries, in shops, and even on clothing and home design goods. It’s not intimidating, and yet the paintings are colorful, immediate, and joyful and speak to the artist’s desire to play, be loose, and to create freely.
Lynn Whipple paints wildly and in small to large formats with a combination of acrylic paint, charcoal, and colorful soft pastel. She uses fresh, abundant flower arrangements as her muse. Expressive Flower Painting presents a range of creative painting exercises that help readers develop vibrant nature paintings. This exciting book is an in-depth expansion of Lynn’s class called Big Bold Bloom Wild Painting, with additional content. The book will cover mark making, layering techniques, how to do “spin drawings,” color methods, painted backgrounds, working from life, and how to successfully combine a wide variety of media for the maximum effect.

Doodling is really just mark making . . . marks that happen when you are otherwise occupied. These intuitive marks that flow from you naturally while you are doodling are an expression of your true style, like your handwriting. This book looks at our doodles as resources; treasures from which we can create full-sized paintings. Even if you don’t consider yourself a doodler, the exercises and techniques in this book will give you a fun way to tap into your personal style, the voice that comes from deep inside.
Through the exercises in this book, you will dig into your creative life to find a style that is authentically yours. The invitation starts with a pencil as you work through automatic and specific doodle assignments. Eventually, you will learn how to size up and combine these doodles into larger compositions. Then, you will begin mixing it up with watercolor paints and, finally, with acrylic paints. (info from amazon.com)
Introducing a compelling new activity for crafters and artists, doodlers and coloring book enthusiasts of all ages.
Paint by Sticker includes everything you need to create twelve vibrant, full-color “paintings.” The images—including sunflowers, a fox, a hummingbird in mid-flight, two boats on the water—are rendered in “low-poly,” a computer graphics style that creates a 3-D effect. As in paint-by-number, each template is divided into dozens of spaces, each with a number that corresponds to a particular colored sticker. Find the sticker, peel it, and place it in the right space. Add the next, and the next, and the next—it’s an activity that’s utterly absorbing as you watch a “painting” emerge from a flat black-and-white illustration to a dazzling image with color, body, spirit.
The pages are perforated for easy removal, making it simple to frame the completed images. (info from amazon.com)
