Description of this Book

Take a visual journey of discovery and learn to paint! Painting looks like so much fun, but it's intimidating if you have never done it. If you approach painting as just a way to express yourself, play with color, explore creativity, and have some fun -- that can be enough, and you may even be pleased with your results. But how does one begin to paint? What are the rules? The thing is, there are none! As Kindah Khalidy shows in her delightful book, there are lots of important things that a new artist needs to know to begin working in this art form. Once Upon a Simple Canvas: A Visual Guide to Learning to Paint offers something completely new, a stunning and delightful visual journey of discovery! Readers are treated to a simple yet sophisticated look and learn approach to learning to paint by the brilliant and dazzling artist Kindah Khalidy. As she shares insights into the artistic process, Khalidy's playful compositions and clever visual clues illuminate various approaches to the art form, spark ideas for creativity, and encourage aspiring artists to take risks, allowing space for unexpected and sometimes wonderful accidents to occur. A hardcover case holds the 112-page paperback book and canvases to paint on.
