This thorough guide explains both the principles and practice of abstract painting.
Constructed as a complete course that takes you from basic principles to advanced interpretation, it's packed with exercises, demonstrations, hints and tips. There's even a final chapter covering the history of the movement and a look at some of its main participants.

John explains throughout not just what you're doing, but why you're doing it. Particularly interesting are his transitions from completely realistic pencil sketches to an abstract final result. He also shows a mid-way stage where details blur and colours and edges start to exaggerate.

Subject matter ranges from landscapes, seascapes and buildings to still lifes, people and animals. John shows you that there's nothing that can't be given the abstract treatment as long as you have the correct approach.

This is an enjoyable as well as instructive look at a technique that's gaining many followers. It should fulfil every need and demand.
