Pour! Scrape! Tear! Ink! Put feeling and fun into your paintings.

Discover a multitude of ways to energize your artwork with tantalizing texture, juicy color and a fresh spirit of adventure! Through a series of step-by-step demonstrations, this book presents out-of-the-ordinary techniques for creating a multitude of surface qualities and textures. As you scatter different types of salt, pour paint, scrape watercolor pencils and more, you'll experience a surge of artistic spontaneity while creating expressive and personal paintings.

  • Experiment with new ways to play with paint. Use unconventional materials to yield exciting landscapes. "Sculpt" flowers with a palette knife. Bring portraits to life with luscious texture. Paint with paper, plastic wrap, twine and more.
  • Go beyond basic paper. Expand your surface choices and reinvent your favorite techniques by working on clayboard, gesso-primed watercolor paper, collage backgrounds and other exciting new grounds.
  • Add texture to your art life. Inspirational sidebars explore plein air painting, using your art for charity and other opportunities for turning your creative life into a rich and rewarding tapestry.
