(back cover)

Open this book and discover unconventional approaches and techniques that will make your landscape paintings more interesting and original. You will find ten practical, step-by-step exercises, each with clear and simple instructions for employing unusual techniques that depart from more traditional approaches to painting. Also included is a special section that offers suggestions on ways to experiment with non-typical materials and produce highly original effects.

Books in Barron's Painting Recipes series encourage artists to think like an imaginative cook when starting out on a new painting. Just as a creative chef experiments with original combinations of ingredients to produce a culinary masterpiece, so too should an artist try working with unusual substances and materials to add more graphic interest to their work.

Synopsis:

Painting Recipes Books are designed for mid-level art students and amateur painters who are looking to perfect their style by trying new interpretive forms and experimenting with sophisticated techniques they have never tried before. This new series takes its inspiration from cooking recipe books. Like imaginative chefs creating new recipes, artists are encouraged to try out and mix different substances with paints to obtain new effects on canvas or paper. This Painting Recipes Book focuses on landscape painting and presents exercises and explanations, supplemented with how-to illustrations. It also discusses the uses of various materials that aren't traditionally thought of as standard in an artist's tool box. Color illustrations on every page.
