I am admittedly a bookworm when it comes to art techniques. My Christmas wish list is usually written on Amazon and I’m well-known to have a few books waiting for me on the Holds shelf at my local library each time I go in. I’ve always been a visual, hands-on type learner, and it’s the same with art for me.
My secret is that I’ve never read half of the books in my studio. Most of the time, they become visual inspiration. Every once in a while, however, there will come a book that’s more. It’s original. It draws you into it. It inspires you. It makes you want to dive past the surface. I just found one of those books!
“Art Saves” features stories and art of 20 artists. The tales, artwork images, and shared techniques are more than surface fluff. I really love this book and I definitely recommend it to all of my art friends!
Here’s a link to Amazon where you can check it out in more detail. They even share a good number of pages from inside the book so you can get hooked like I did 🙂
Have an awesome, arty day!!
