Abstract Painting Concepts and Techniques takes the artist through the history and exact methods of abstract works in two clear, comprehensive sections, covering both traditional abstract works and post-painterly modern abstraction.
The first section, on traditional painterly abstraction using brush and easel, looks at space, brushwork, paint quality, and collage. The second section, on post-painterly modern abstraction, contemplates options ranging from the pour-and-spatter techniques of Jackson Pollock, to the staining, scraping, and abrading of modern acrylic artists.
