Some of the book I like, but was not up to the quality of Misy Mawn's work, and I see nothing at all new.
Content consists of:
-The first 40 page on how to draw and/or paint. You cannot teach drawing, light and shadow, how to mix "skin tone" colors in only 40 pages. There are reasons that whole books, college majors, etc are devoted to this SKILL...hardly a "technique" IMO. And for many who are not comfortable drawing, this is big drawback (those who are, dont need this big section). I truly wished she HAD glossed over HOW to draw (which she really is not qualified to teach, IMO - got my degree in illustration, so that may color my view), and talked more about how to incorporate your drawings and paintings into mixed media projects: inspire me to use pencil and water color and paints together. What do the mediums do when blended...inspire me to try colored pencils that become water color paint when mixed with wet medium, etc. WHAT DO THE MEDIUM DO? How can I manipuate them seems more appropriate and not intimate people depending on their varying skills with drawing.
-I really dong want to learn how to make a coil clay pot (definitley not mixing media here), or how to sculpt a doll out of paper clay. I want to know how to MIX these with other media (that IS the title of the book)
-An origami section on how to fold a happiness crane, under origami. That is all she diagrams how to do, and shows photos of other, simple (MUCH more original and fun) folded things. FOUR pages on how to fold a Crane...yikes. Again...Read more ›
