Colour is one of the most important reference points in non-representational painting. Its careful and sensitive use can give shape and form to a composition where the details of the subject are necessarily blurred.

Colour is at the heart of Claire's work and she uses its vibrancy to create simple yet stunning images that challenge the limits of a two-dimensional form. In this exciting and hugely informative book, she explains how she works with subjects from still life and flowers to buildings, figures and landscapes, showing how the finished results have evolved from the original inspiration.

Abstract painting is as much about a state of mind as a depiction of your subject and it is the viewer's emotional rather than visual response that is important. Claire will guide you through composition and structure, explaining surfaces and colour choices as well as the use of media that include acrylic, watercolour, oil and pastel.

Inspiring as well as instructional, this is a superb guide to the world of abstraction.

Please note that this is a re-issue of an earlier book with the same title.
