When adults begin to study art, they often jump straight into rigorous and serious study, forgetting to play. They often become discouraged, realising that the time it takes to learn traditional painting is overwhelming. This book bridges the gap between formal study and fun by teaching artists to use their inborn talent to express themselves in their painting, whether decorating their homes or creating a beautiful greeting card. Acosta encourages readers to relax and play while they paint, to connect with their childlike playful side, but not to neglect the basic pictorial tools of composition and colour. The latter part of the book applies the expressive painting techniques learned toward creating beautiful uniquely personal works of art and craft. The splashy, colourful art and variety of ideas make this a unique book that will appeal to a wide audience.
