Aimed at beginning artists who lack the confidence to boldly approach abstract painting, this innovative tutorial offers a series of projects that introduce fundamental skills and basic techniques. Sure to yield satisfying results, each lesson focuses on the step-by-step process of creating a concept using colours, shapes, and brushstrokes. Emphasizing the accessibility of abstract painting, this resource includes pull-out tracing papers that establish for the artist a clear look and organization on the painting surface—making project reproduction both easy and fun.

The Ready to Paint series provides six tracings for readers to pull out and transfer on to paper. There is one for each of the five step-by-step demonstrations, plus a bonus tracing of the inspirational painting in the Introduction section. Dani Humberstone is a successful abstract artist who uses the tracings in an innovative, imaginative way. Follow here in-depth step-by-step instructions to produce your own wonderful piece of abstract art.
