Here are some of the most recent books I received:
Daring adventures in paint
Mati Rose McDonough
I came across Mati Rose's artwork after reading Creative Pilgrimage
I enjoy her style of painting and colour choices. Her book is great for beginners, the directions are easy to follow. It will definitely inspire me for my own art or for my teaching.
Art at the speed of life
One of the best review about this book is by Joanne Sharpe. So many NEW techniques to try!
Surface treatment workshop: 45 mixed-media techniques
Darlene Olivia McElroy and Sandra Duran-Wilson
I own already a book on Image Transfer by the same authors. This one is as fantastic. I like the fact that the authors tell us how archival each technique is. Some of the techniques were not new to me but it's a great compilation of techniques in one book.
