An approach to mixed-media painting that celebrates the Wabi-Sabi philosophy–embracing imperfections, building up and tearing back and finding inspiration in what is aged and seasoned. Readers will learn what Wabi-Sabi means and how to use the approach to find inspiration and beauty in the humble nature of everyday objects. The author demonstrates how everyday photographs express the Wabi-Sabi style and shows how they serve as inspiration for color, shape, texture, composition and mood. After learning where to look for inspiration and what materials to use, the reader will be guided step-by-step through eight technique chapters each with a new focus on painting technique and composition.
I have a blog, called “Wabi-Sabi Art Workshop with Serena Barton” where I’m posting my wabi-sabi photos and art work. I’m also posting readers’ questions, comments, and their photos and art work. Check it out!
