The book is particularly good for its treatment of the Elements and Principles of Design...Nita is clearly a fan of the late Ed Whitney and her explanation of his favourite subject is very well done - it would be ideal background material for a tutor who aims to show her class how essential this topic is to produce good graphic art. I really liked the Activity list attached to each section of the book.....the person who owns this book will never be at loss for something new - whether it be in the area of realist painting or of abstraction and everthing in between.
Well done Nita - a well produced practical book for both beginner and advanced painter.
"The New Creative Artist" and have had my nose in this book now for days. I
think that Nita has put it all in one book. She hasn't held back a thing -
its all there in black and white. No matter what your level of expertise is
or whether you are a beginner or more advanced, its all there. I would
recommend this book to anyone who is open to new ideas on creativity.
Nita goes from her Introduction which catches you right away with new
deas - I love the titles of each chapter - you just want to read it! Her
chapter on "Drawing, Don't Leave Home Without It" is one of my favorites.
Since I teach drawing to children, I have gained some new insights into the
process - written so simply. Nita's chapter on the elements and principles
of design is a must read for every Artist. I have often said "I don't
understand abstract art!" Well after you read her chapter 6. ABSTRACTION:
OFF THE BEATEN PATH, you will understand as I did this form of art....As you
can see this is a book that I have truly enjoyed. and I say to Nita
Leland - well done and thank you for not holding back. It's one of the best
I have read on those subjects....Joan

"Inspired by Color"
inspiring! Move over "The Artist's Way"! Somehow I could never make it
through that book. What makes this book fantastic is that you can pick out
what you feel inspired by. This is easy and accessible reading for
anyone wanting to be unblocked or moved creatively in new directions. I
am definitely looking forward to reading it and trying out some of
these inspiring ideas. It is beautifully laid out--real eye candy for
...Experience the creativity known only to a child. Once you pick up this new book by, Nita Leland, you will find yourself immersed in your own imagination that before now, you thought only a few could possess.
If you ever thought you might have a creative bone in your body, this book will guide you to develop a creative spirit in finding it. In addition, it will unlock and train your mind with the fundamentals shared by the masters who know that sketching an idea is only a tiny part of their success.
Profoundly educational, yet highly entertaining; The New Creative Artist is a five-star presentation. Hats off to Nita and North Light's design team."
