This book is packed with mixed-media techniques and perfect for the artist who isn't sure what medium best acts as a vehicle for her expression. If you enjoy getting a taste of many different approaches in one book, you'll love The Artist Unique. It would also make the perfect gift for someone who may not be sure yet which artistic road to take.
