Artful Readers Club - Delight in the Details

I am a couple days late with my review this month and I completely missed February's review due to the fire. We are almost back to normal, spent the last 3 days painting up high on scaffolding and ladders and did I mention I dont do heights? Exhausting to say the least!

For the March review I read the book Delight in the Details by Lisa M Pace


I found with this book I didn't actually need to take lots of notes, it was very well laid out, really well written and the photography is just luscious to look at. The main motto of the book is ''re think and re use'' which I love. It has a vast amount of techniques and products which are very nicely explained and used in a creative manner. It gives good advice on what to use and how to use it.

All round this is a very good book and has been placed on my to keep pile.

Here is my piece created with this book as a main influence.

Lovely, lovely art piece, Claire. I only wish I could have seen a few pages inside. I'm all about re-using and recycling, especially for the month of April.

Beautiful artwork, and from the cover it looks as though it may be an interesting book.

Gina said...

Nothing like a beautifully photographed technique book is there :D So glad you are bouncing back after the horrible experience in Feb.
The image and canvas are just beautiful :D XXX

I love finding another use for things and this book looks as though it provides plenty of inspiration. Great cat artwork. Like the lace.

Your book this month sounds intrigueing, I think I will need to add it to my wish list. Love the page it inspired and the quote you have used on it.

Oh, what a gorgeous page! It looks so peaceful and serene. I guess that's just how you want to feel after a fire...

The book is on my list now, not just to read but to have... Love the cover! Thanks! :)

Wow I love that page! I draw mostly but you may have twisted my arm trying something different! The book sounds a good one to put on my list.

I'm so late visiting. Thank you for your lovely comment at mine :)

I really love your art piece - tabbies are my all time favourite 9s well as black cats... so, joint all time favourite) and this makes me so miss having one. (I'm the lone cat lover in a doggy household)
