Books

If you are looking for your inner artist or just wish to have some ideas for creating art, I recommend you to take a look at these books. They have been very important to me - they have thaught me a lot and have given me a lot of inspiration. I think that some of them are even invaluable.

I have provided direct links to Amazon.com, so that you can read more about the books and order them.

I will add new books soon, so please come back!

The Tao of Watercolor by Jeanne Carbonetti

This book contains dream-like watercolor paintings and teaches you how you can achieve similar results. But this book is not just about technique, it is about unleashing your creativity to new levels. This is the first Jeanne Carbonetti's book I bought and I constantly view it to get some inspiration.

The Zen of Creative Painting by Jeanne Carbonetti

This book is about finding your creativity by painting. It teaches you to think more intuitively and forget about too much left-brain analysing (well, Jeanne's other books do that too :). Contains beautiful paintings.

The Yoga of Drawing by Jeanne Carbonetti

Learn creative drawing techniques. Again, this book goes much deeper than traditional drawing classes. And has a lot of nice drawings and paintings to look at.

Making Pearls : Living the Creative Life by Jeanne Carbonetti

This is Jeanne's newest book and I haven't bought it yet, but I'm having high expectations. :)

Painting from the Source by Aviva Gold and Elena Oumano

This was probably the first non-traditional art book that I bought. It shows you how to use painting as a tool to get a better understanding for yourself and to resolve things from the past. It helps you to find your way to the "source". Find happiness and different ways to create and enjoy art with this book. This book gave me a completely new way of creating and thinking about art. And remember that this is just a book, so read it and start painting.
