(back cover)

Open this book and discover how to add interest and originality to your paintings by varying their surface textures in unusual ways. For example, you can use tissues and crumpled paper, incorporate modeling pastes, or experiment with many other unconventional materials. You will find ten practical, step-by-step oil and acrylic painting exercises, each with clear 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 to obtain new effects on canvas or paper. This Painting Recipes Book focuses on dealing with textures in 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.
