Abstract Painting: Concepts and Techniques

by Watson-Guptill


Until now, the techniques used to create great abstract paintings were surrounded by a veil of mystery. Abstract Painting: Concepts and Techniques lifts that veil to reveal the exact methods behind the masterworks. Now students and professional artists can stop guessing and start building on the techniques of the great abstract artists to create their own innovative new work. Two clear, comprehensible sections let artists focus quickly on their specific areas of interest. The first section, on Traditional Painterly Abstraction, using brush and easel, looks at pictorial space, brushwork, paint quality, and collage. The second section, on Post—Painterly Modern Abstraction, 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 recipes for key approaches show artists how to get the best aesthetic results, freeing them to move forward philosophically. Paperback book measure 9 in. x 10 1/2 in., 160 pages with 240 color illustrations. Watson-Guptill, 2005. ISBN 0823095428
