Baldwin, Ann. Creative Paint Workshop for Mixed-Media Artists. ISBN 978-1-59253-456-2.

Baldwin, Ann. ART INSTRUCTION Baldwin refreshingly sees abstract art as a childlike craft rather than as a fine art. She first teaches the basic rules of design and composition, then sets free with paint, crayons, photos, fabric and wax. This unique volume removes the pomposity from art and restores the simple joy inherent to its creation. - Library Journal, July 2009.

Creative Paint Workshop for Mixed-Media Artists: Experimental Techniques for Composition, Layering, Texture, Imagery, and Encaustic A wonderful step by step workbook for Mixed Media beginner artists. (I'm sure other levels of artis could find it helpful.) At each step from composition to color, to design to finishing the ideas and work are well described. This the the "how-to-book" for those of us who are unable to go to teaching events but wish to know how to create. Invaluable.

An exceptionally well done book. The author goes into great detail of her techniques and processes that she uses to create amazingly beautiful works of art. Easy to read, follow and understand the writing is clear and engaging. The photography is wonderful and you'll appreciate not only the full page views of Ann's work but also the detail shots will do a terrific job of capturing the texture in the pieces. It's impossible not to be inspired by the images in this book. Highly recommended!

I have 5 or 6 of these creative technique books, and I respect Baldwin's book for several reasons.
1. She is careful to point out health and safety hazards.
(I just bought a popular how-to that encourages its trusting readers to cover their hands in paint, and rub paint into the canvas - a fine way to end your life early)
2. Baldwin clearly, and carefully explains her techniques, unlike one hugely popular artist/writer, with beautiful examples, but half-ass*d explanations so that you can never figure out her more interesting secrets.
Baldwin shows plenty of unique, interesting techniques, and she doesn't hold back.
Artists who have gone through as many slovenly, mistake-ridden art books as I have will appreciate her efforts.

Lately we have seen a plethora of books regarding different aspects of the mixed media world. Unfortunately, they have begun to all look the same. So many of them are lovely eye candy without much substance. This book is different. If you have ever been fortunate enough to take a workshop with Ann Baldwin, you will easily recognize the experience created within this books' covers. I really did feel like I was back in the classroom with Ann. Her directions are clear and logical; but best of all they create a unique experience in mixed media. Ann begins by explaining the basics and continues to build on these basics throughout the book. By the end of this book you will feel like you have just finished a semester long class in art school. But this is better than that because you can open it and review over and over. I would strongly recommend this book to people at all skill levels. It is definitely a book that is worth having on your shelf. It is one you will open over and over again.

I am not one to write reviews often - especially on books about art technique, mainly because I am beyond disappointed. HOWEVER, this book, by someone whose website I have visited often, exceeds my expectations.

I am a mixed media artist, self taught, but am always looking to grow my background, to integrate it, to add depth, to make the background work for my piece, and good information is hard to come by. This book gives great examples and instruction, WITHOUT leaving out any steps - which is a real problem with a lot of instructional books by artists. Ann even provides photos of a piece in process (very insightful and reassuring).

There are exercises as well, and Ann provides the colors needed. You will notice that all of the products mentioned are Golden - and Ann is a Golden Working Artist, lucky dog! But you can make do, or experiment, with your own supply of paints. The exercises are more about how color works together to add depth and interest, contrast, etc, than a specific palette.

Best of all, she keeps the language conversational and real. You feel like you could be in a workshop with a friend instead of reading a book. There are wonderful tips and techniques that any artist could adopt (and alter) to enhance their own style. This is how 'how to' art books should be written. Nothing pompous and dry about this book. Just actual useful information, and lots of it. This book is rich with lots of full color photos AND text. Each spread has multiple photographs of work and a lot of information. This book is for artists to use, it is not a vanity book for the author.

I recommend it to anyone working with acrylics - from beginner to an old codger of an artist. I would give it ten stars if Amazon had them!

This book is full of color photos showing techniques for altered type collage art. Much information on creating surface interest and layering materials. The products used are Golden brand, but could be adapted to whatever is available. The hardback version of this book is spiral bound, and very good quality printing. Inspirational and a good resource for the mixed media artist.

I first discovered Ann Baldwin many years ago when surfing the net in search of collage examples for a mixed media collage class I was teaching. At that time she was doing collages with authors as the main focus. She's branched out since then, and I like the direction she's taken. A few years ago I bought her video, "Telling Stories with Collage & Paint." It's an excellent resource, so when I saw she had written this book, I made sure to buy it. It has many new examples of her work, and includes chapters on abstract design, materials, composition, combining words with paint - something I love to do as a calligrapher, using digital photographs and even encaustic painting. Ann is an excellent instructor and doesn't leave gaping holes in the process as many authors of how-to books tend to do. I'm looking forward to exploring this book more thoroughly, but I've already seen enough to convince me of its worth.
