Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A visual sampler, including step-by-step demonstrations, for experimenting with inks, watercolor, acrylics, oils, pastels, and unusual materials to achieve hundreds of different effects to use in your paintings.

Looking for new directions in your artwork? Between the covers of ArtEffects you'll find hundreds of fresh ideas that will spark your creative instincts.

ArtEffects is divided into five sections that cover the most-used painting mediums: inks, watercolor, acrylics, oils, and pastels. Each section begins with a general discussion of the specific medium's unique properties, physical makeup, and methods of application, followed by a list of various materials that can be used in combination with the medium. Then comes a dazzling display of examples (some with step-by-step demonstration) of the almost limitless textures and effects you can achieve by combining one medium with another, or with the myriad papers and art-related products on the market today, as well as with household and other unexpected materials such as cornstarch, string, and plastic wrap. Here, you can easily find out how a specific medium will perform in combination with, for example, sand, gold gouache, or acrylic modeling paste, and how that medium can be used in airbrush, stenciling, and monoprinting techniques.

With more than 400 full-color examples of effects that run the gamut from the traditional to the experimental, ArtEffects is an extraordinary visual reference that belongs in every artist's studio.

About the Author

Jean Drysdale Green was born in Perth, Western Australia. Her special interest in art began in 1969 when she joined a local artist's group, and subsequently she studied at Perth Technical College, Churchlands College of advanced Education, Stanhope Institute (in London, England), and Claremont School of Art. She has won numerous awards for her paintings, which have been shown at the Bedford Way in London, the McLelland in Frankston, Victoria, and the Burswood Casino in Perth. Her work was also featured in a one-woman exhibition in Perth. From 1981 to 1988 Green was the co-proprieter of a retail art supply business in Perth. She has participated in National Art Materials Trade Association conferences, as well as in papermaking workshops in both Japan and Australia. She is the author of Five Minute Flower Painting (Sydney, N.S.W.: Australian Artist Magazine, 1992), and in 1992 was a guest lecturer in mixed media at Curtin university in Western Australia. Currently she is president of the Watercolor Society of Western Australia.
