Finger Painting Weekend Workshop: A Beginner's Guide to Creating Brush-Free Works of Art (PagePerfect NOOK Book) based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I thought that it was impossible to make "serious work" without brushes, but after completing the first two lessons in this book I am never looking back. I have toyed around with painting for years and spent so much money on brushes and cleaners and solvents. I always felt like if I just had one more brush or a better easel, I could really start.All you need for the weekend workshop is a canvas, paints, and some latex gloves! it is so liberating to have such a simple set of tools to really work with. There is absolutely no excuse to not produce a really quality piece of art-- all the steps are well-explained in a super confidence boosting way. Before this book I had never finished a single painting, and, trust me, if I can do it anybody can. The author has a really reassuring writing style. I agree with the book's recommendation that you should invest in good paint. The paint practically does half the work and all of the other tools are so inexpensive you will save plenty of money to be able to get the good stuff. If you think you can't paint, or keep putting it off all the time, this book is a guarantee that you will have an amazing painting right away!
