Forget everything you think you know about traditional watercolour painting - Paint Play will show you how to experiment with paint, use it spontaneously and have fun, no experience required! Through a series of 21 simple, achievable activities, artist Katie Rose Johnston demonstrates different ways of mixing colours, experiments with textures using salt and cling film, makes spatter art, animal print patterns and much more. A gorgeous illustration showcases each technique and is accompanied by helpful annotations in a playful, sketchbook-style layout, showing how to practise each technique at home. Focusing on the process rather than the result, Paint Play is the perfect inspiration for anyone who wants to discover techniques to use in their own paintings or simply be creative, play with paint and have fun.
