Overcome the Obstacles to your Artistic Expression

Improving your artwork can be as simple as learning how to trust your eyes. Painting With Your Artist's Brain shows you how to portray even the most complex subject by focusing on what you really see - not what you think you see.

Expert art instructor Carl Purcell shows you how to overcome dependency on the "intellectual brain" and listen carefully to the more observant "artist's brain."

For example, if you want to paint a tree, your intellectual brain has on file how a tree should look. To create an attractive painting, you must use your artist's brain to paint the unique characteristics of the actual tree in front of you and ignore the generic image of a tree stored in your intellectual brain.

With Painting With Your Artist's Brain, you'll learn visual skills and artistic techniques that will instantly make you a better painter, no matter what your skill level or medium. Inside you'll find:

  • Basic watercolor techniques
  • Nine watercolor demonstrations
  • Examples and fun exercises teaching you how to "see" and design great compositions
  • "Points to Remember" sidebars that allow you to quickly grasp each concept

Maximize the power of your artist's brain today and embark on the path to creating better art!
