Synopsis

Painting Accessible Abstracts by Laura Reiter

Painting Accessible Abstracts is an inspirational but practical book that will help artists to paint in a less figurative way. Laura Reiter demonstrates different ways to approach an abstract painting from 'just a little bit abstract' to 'completely abstract'. She does this by focussing on ideas and themes as starting points, looking at the creative processes involved and more unusual techniques. Laura Reiter also covers how to use materials creatively - watercolour, acrylics, mixed media and collage - and how to experiment with colour and composition. Several projects are included, and, in addition to Laura's vibrant, colourful paintings, the work of several other contemporary abstract artists is featured.

About the Author

Laura Reiter is well known for her colourful abstract paintings and her accessible approach to teaching how to paint in a more abstract style. She is author of Collins Learn to Paint Abstracts and a regular contributor to the Artist magazne. She teaches abstract painting and regularly runs popular courses and workshops
