  • Vetitc
This is a well-written treatise on the validity, elements and process of abstract painting, but the style of the paintings within is a bit dated and unappealing, and even annoying. I do like the daily exercises, which I do with Caran d'Ache watercolor sticks in a watercolor sketchbook, but again, I do not like the images, which are all too much the same with what I consider little, if any, originality in composition or color. Just make a few scribbles on a piece of paper, and color them and this is what you get in the book. However, once I do the exercises, which do stimulate my own originality, I can then choose to do a painting on canvas of them, and in that regard, the book has been an impetus to my own work. The text is thoughtful and interesting and provides a sound basis for any abstractionist's artist statement. The merits of the book are in the text, not the images, which are redundant and boring.

I just received this book, purchased largely based on reviews here on Amazon. I am new to painting of any sort but have been fooling around with acrylics on my own. I want a book that is technique focused -- but more so than the wonderful Acrylic Revolution, which explains all the incredible things you can do with acrylics. I want to learn how to paint abstracts, and this book really isn't what will get me there. It's too theoretical for me. I'm planning to return it.

I love this book. Used it very often. I took instructions at the WAM and found this book very helpful. I am color blind and find abstract painting just what I needed. And love the colors of today in society. The information given in this book is awesome. Thanks for a great product. I would recommend this book to anyone painting and wanting to learn more about the art of abstract painting. Thanks.

I chose this book after having borrowed a Rolina Van Vliet book from a friend. I now own 3 of her books. They are well written, beautifully illustrated, absolute quality. If there were 10 stars I would give all three books that I own 10 stars. Can't say enough good about Rolina's books.

I teach art to adults and use this as a as a teaching text. Very good illustrations, flow and content range. Material presented in an easy to understand and interesting way. This is one of the very best books I have used on this subject. I highly recommend it.
There is much more to abstract painting than scattering shapes and colors around on the picture plane. Admittedly is the technique that permits multiple focal areas , but in the absence of identifiable form there should be more attention paid to unity and coherent visual relationships.
