German artist Waltraud Nawratil shows you how to combine a love for nature with a passion for expressive painting. Abstract Nature is divided into helpful sections to teach the reader how to use acrylics, watercolors, airbrushing, putty and stencils, as well as natural materials such as sand, bark and leaves to create captivating pictures full of color and vitality.
There is a wealth of stunning abstract pieces from the artists, which will provide inspiration for more experienced painters as well as the beginner. The book covers the variations through all seasons teaching the reader to see the natural world with creativity and a unique, new perspective.
Waltraud Nawratail has always been inspired by the natural world, choosing subjects from her surroundings with vibrant and attractive colors. She began her artistic career with watercolors before moving on to experiment with other techniques and media.
