A colorful guide to the basics of painting and crafting with paint. The book provides a basic overview of materials, exercises, and color theory before presenting a variety of crafts based around the seasons. The welcoming tone, easy to follow instructions, and appealing pictures make this a great book for beginners or those with a casual interest in paints and crafting.
I love painting, and I'm always looking for new ways to enjoy the process. This book has lots of great ideas - and I love that they are organized by season! - that I know I will come back to. I liked the inclusion of different types of painting mediums - not just acrylic on paper, but paint markers and fabric paint, painting on clay and terra cotta, and more. A great book for beginners, but also a lovely book for those already familiar with paint.NetGalley, Erin S

A beautiful book with lots of inspiring projects. The projects are divided into four groups linked to a season. The basis of each project is painting but each project incorporates other crafts to produce unique multimedia objects. Everything is kept nice and simple, the projects do not require lots of expensive materials. There are clear explanations for each project along with plenty of photographs. Becki Clark's decorative style is dainty and mostly incorporates botanical themes. This is an ideal book for a beginner looking to get started crafting or for the more experienced crafted looking for fresh inspiration.NetGalley, Janet McMahon
