Realistic Abstracts - Kees Van Aalst
An inspiring, in-depth introduction to the concept of realistic abstract painting, using a variety of water-based media.
This book introduces the concept of realistic abstract painting - a loosely impressionistic form of painting that leaves much to the imagination of the viewer. The subject, though recognisable, is executed with freedom and fluidity, resulting in a painting that is far from photographic. It has been described as the 'grey' area between figurative and abstract painting, yet there is nothing dull about this style, as the numerous colourful examples in this book show. Aimed at those with some experience of painting, all the examples in this book use various forms of water-based media, including gouache, acrylics and watercolours.
Designed to inspire, this book will stimulate your imagination; encourage you to try out the various methods described; and help you develop your own way of painting in this exciting style. Numerous colourful examples of works of art by various artists Clear, in-depth descriptions and analysis of realistic abstract painting Includes examples using a wide range of water-based media, including watercolours, gouache and acrylics
