    Downloaded from Netgalley If you enjoy watercolor painting or arts and crafts this book is well worth checking out The Organic Painter goes into detail about specific watercolor techniues and applies them to different materials including coffee tea alcohol ink salt boiling water and gold One of my favorite sections was on how to use flame and smoke to create marks People familiar with watercolor painting and advanced techniues will appreciate the detail and thoroughness of this book Beginners new to painting or people with a general interest in arts and crafts will be in good hands This book is easy to read and sets people up for success Experimenting with painting is fun and this book gives the right amount of instruction and guidance for the creation of art using these different mediums and techniues The art within the book serves as inspiration but the instructions do not specifically explain how to recreate the author's own art It's best to experiment on your own using the explained techniues as guidance I rarely purchase art books that teach techniues because there is a vast amount of tutorials freely available on the internet I do plan on purchasing this book though because it is uniue from anything I've come across on any website Most of the websites that demonstrate how to use organic materials for watercolor painting are amateur compared to The Organic Painter This truly is a stand out book that provides a wealth of information regarding uniue materials and different techniues

    This book is one of the most unusual art books I've read and considering my 80 collection of art books that's a lot to say I've even taken classes using unusual materials before and have used tea in my art before tooBut this artist has such an unusual style of painting that I couldn't help but be awed with the result I tried to recreate some of the amazing art in this book and it was uickly apparent to me that I will need a lot practice But I am super intrigued and am looking forward to experimenting My favorite section was the combining of embroidery floss with the art I'd seen some of that before but the artist put the floss on the page painted around it then removed it to create whitespace and then added floss to another section The art in these pages is layered flowing organic and detailed and complex You can see something different from afar vs up close You can look for a long time and find some small new interesting bit each time If you want a challenge and a way to really shake up the way you do art this is a great find

    I received a digital advanced reader's copy of this bookI loved every minute of this book Griffiths brings to life his paintings and his process Going with the flow inviting chaos into the making and having an organic take on the artistic process while using organic materials feels like the artist is allowed to explore a whole new universe while being grounded in everyday materials being used in new and creative ways The original artwork included in the book blew me away But the exercises made it feel attainable and un daunting He brings art off it pillar and allows us to embrace it in our own way allows us to make art out of mistakes and to incorporate a multitude of practices from tea brewing to embroidery With this book I feel am one step closer to an artistic center that I never fully realized I was capable of

    The Organic Painter is an art instruction book about using unusual and sometimes homemade paints in a somewhat abstract watercolor style The author explained how to make things like tea or coffee for use in painting and tips on what he's discovered about using them He taught the process that he uses not just how to replicate several of his paintings Even with the projects in this book he explained the process so you gain experience with the things he's teaching but you end up with a uniue piece of your ownHe talked about using ink that spreads when touched with water tea coffee alcohol salt soot adding thread mixed media unusual ways to apply the paint spilling blowing stamping with your own rubber stamps turning the paper while adding paint using thread etc using boiling water to erase using metallic paints and gold leaf and He did a good job of explaining how to do the different steps and how to make your own inks and paints He empowers you to use your own creativity and inspiration using these paints Overall I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in using uniue organic paints in your paintingI received an e book review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley

    I had seen this in the book store before but did not pick it up at the time Upon reading it does come across as a bit different from other artistic techniue instructional books as it does not stick to the one style It does not really look like a book you would read through from beginning to end rather flick through until you find something you like and then try it outSome of the things I found in this book I have not seen done elsewhere and it suits my style of working as I like to switch media from one drawing to the next even when doing a life drawing session so I end up with dozens of drawings by the end of itThe work on display might be a bit above my skill level at the moment but I understand they would want finish artwork to make the book look betterNot sure I would do the part with the candle that much but it does remind me of making parchment type history reports by burning the edges of the paper with a candle and painting it with coffee back in the day

    In this book you will explore non conventional materials for creating art Coffee tea alcohol flame ice and other easily accessible ways to unwind your creativityWhat I liked the most about this book is that it explains in detail the process Carne Griffiths uses for creating his amazing paintings The way he combines inks and tea to create a free form organic splatters and then how he combines it with pencil and ink drawings it's almost magical I like how it looks messy and random but at the same time precise and organized If you like his tea and ink creations and want to try it as well then this book is for youThis is definitely great for those who like to create art in a spontaneous and loose style It is also perfect for stimulating creativity and developing your mark making skills In my case I loved it because he uses unconventional materials and I'm all about experimentation So for those free souls that anything in their home can potentially

    I really really love this book it has so many elements to it and they are all simple and really make a lot of senseStarting to stretching your own paper to making your own paint from natural materials using tea coffee alcohol natural dyes and boiling water to paint and give various effects to the art piece I use a lot of these materials in my fibre art but never thought of taking the next logical step in using it on paper The effect are stunning the information is easily understood and the photos are both informative and fabulousIf you are a paint challenge yourself with something different and natural

    New favorite book and artist I am not familiar with Carne Griffiths work but after seeing his process and artworks in this book I am now a fan As an artist who is keen on trying out different techniues and finding which style works best for me I learned a lot from just reading through this bookI admire how much Carne was able to work with organic materials such as tea and coffee and I am amazed at how well negatives spaces are used in the artist's works I love the mix of abstract and portrait art among the sample works shownI would definitely try out a version of the style shown in this book and see what I can create

    This is an amazing book I love the use of natural materials to make paints and inks I remember exploring this concept in art school one afternoon many ages ago as a teen Our instructor took the class out on a materials hunt on the campus and when we returned to the classroom we used our findings to create paintings I am so going to buy this book Thank you Carne Griffiths for reminding me of this uniue process Love the book
