Responding to her fans’ requests for a book that was both instructional and inspirational, pop surrealist painter Camilla d’Errico decided to open up her studio and offer readers an inside view on the tools, techniques, and inspirations she draws from to create stunningly beautiful, otherworldly works of art.
Focusing as much on developing originality and pushing boundaries as on skills like blending and sketching, Pop Painting includes tips on setting up your studio and choosing materials, as well as advice on painting from your gut, what to do when you’re not inspired, and how to move on when something’s just not working.
Finally, fans and aspiring painters get an up-close look at the step-by-step processes she employs to transform oil and acrylic paints into 15 unforgettable finished paintings of her ethereal and beautiful characters.
