And playing with markers and paint…
I’m enjoying “Brave Intuitive Painting” by Flora Bowley right now. Its a book on techniques for uncovering your own unique painting style. Her painting style is vibrant and fresh and I hope to pick up a few pointers from the exercises in the book.
The paintings are so encouraging; the colors wonderful – very optimistic – not cutesy. I want to try to replicate them but at the same time I don’t want my art to look like a copy of hers. She mentions this in the book – about gathering the tools needed to make art and then taking those tools and creating something you can call your own. I hope that happens!
Its really nice to have such great teachers who are willing to share what they know. I wish there had been books like this when I was first interested in art – there’s no telling where I’d be today!!
