Starting With Abstract Painting


Starting With Abstract Painting and Abstract Work in Other Media by Kenneth Jameson is nice, old thrift edition book from 1970  and is a lovely introduction to basic ideas in making abstract art.  This information shows you how to begin with abstract painting and abstract drawing and branches to other media.  The author included a lot of photographs and illustrations of concepts as they were being explained in the text.  He starts with a lot of source material taken from nature.  Even as an experience artist, I enjoy this book.  As far as I can tell, this was a small press book and it is currently out of print; so I scanned the whole thing.  I am offering it for educational purposes so long as I do not get smacked around over copyright  issues.  You can download it from the link below or read the book by opening it in a new tab in your browser.

I did check and you can get this book on Amazon from $0.01 to $112.00.  I think there is a range in prices based on the fact it is out of print but also no one wants the book.  You have to know the book exists in order to be looking for it on Amazon!
