Includes index. There are times when all artists struggle for inspiration. This can be particularly true when they try to create patterns, textures and designs with which to decorate their work. In the book Carolyn Genders presents a wealth of images, of both natural and manmade objects, that will spark the imagination of all who see them. Along with this, she shows how these images can be visually abstracted and then refined and enveloped to create other beautiful patterns, designs and forms. The result is not only a useful guide to how the creative process works but also a visually glorious sourcebook of images. This book is a must for all artists, whatever filed they work in and whether they are amateurs or professionals.
