Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Advanced artists already conversant in color theory, design, and the tools of traditional art will be inspired by this volume. Van Vliet, a Dutch artist, omits step-by-step lessons in favor of encouraging the inner creative spirit. Novice abstract painters will benefit from Ann Baldwin's Creative Paint Workshop for Mixed-Media Artists.
