With Paint Every Little Thing, you can learn to paint your favorite everyday items using watercolor, gouache, ink, pastel, and more.
From food and kitchen tools to clothing, gardening supplies, home decor, cosmetics, and more, this book will show you how to see the beauty in the everyday—and how to capture it with paint as well!
Start by learning about the supplies you will need with the help of the tools and materials section; then peruse the painting and mixed-media techniques, which include layering, blending, glazing, and more. You’ll also learn how to mix colors.
Once you’ve learned the basics, it’s time to dive into the creative prompts and step-by-step painting projects. Covering fun, appealing subjects, these include:
- food (your favorite foods, ingredients, restaurant items, and more)
- kitchen tools (what you cook with!)
- random things from around the house
- outside items (gardening tools, plants, and so on)
- and much more!
Throughout the book, find beautiful, original artwork. The creative prompts will inspire you to create art of your own with more open-ended suggestions, while the step-by-step projects feature complete instructions for painting in professional artist Kristine Lombardi’s trademark loose, beautiful style.
The Inspired Artist series invites art hobbyists and casual art enthusiasts to have fun learning basic art concepts, relaxing into the creative process to make art in a playful, contemporary style. Following closely after the successful first book in the series—Draw Every Little Thing—Paint Every Little Thing is the ideal resource for artists of all skill levels looking for a creative outlet in their everyday lives.
Also available from the series: Block Print for Beginners and Watercolor Painting at Home.
