There are wonderful, brightly colored photographs taking you step-by-step through a variety of techniques to help broaden your creativity, as well as places to find inspiration and questions to help nudge you out of any artistic blocks you might be having. I'm pretty new to painting and haven't collaged since elementary school, but this book gave me what I needed to just do it. And that was in just one afternoon with the book!
|From Daring Adventures in Paint by Mati Rose McDonough|
Some of the inspiration I got from Daring Adventures in Paint? Be loose. Be colorful. Layer more. Add things to your art that you wouldn't usually expect like silver leaf, feathers, a piece of an old sewing pattern... Be more mindful of your environment and locality for inspiration. Show the world your magic.
