This book offers both the beginner and advanced unique and challenging excercises to get the creative flow happening. Misty covers drawing basics as well as many delightful surprises like working with paper clay, bookbinding and journal-making.
She uses many different materials that really help to create a finished piece with a contemporary feel. For example, I had forgotten about using blending stumps in my drawing and pointed erasers which have really improved my finished drawings. I didn't even know about mark's all pencils! I'm looking forward to experimenting more with mixed media and collage as well as photography. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to re-discover the joy of art-making or just get started!
