"Painting and Understanding Abstract Art" is a practical book on how to paint abstracts but it also explains how to approach and understand abstract art. It moves the teaching of art from a doing level of painting a certain subject in a particular medium to a thinking level of 'what am I doing when I paint?' and 'what am I trying to say in this painting?' Using practical exercises with explanatory text, John Lowry develops the thinking and doing processes together and leads the reader to a greater understanding and appreciation of this most exciting art genre.

If you only buy one book on abstract art let it be this one! This is the best book I've read to help develop abstract skills and /or understanding of abstract art. Written in layman terms it demystifies this poorly understood subject It has lots of wonderful illustrations clearly showing the different ways to achieve great results. You wont find the usual examples of other artists work, they are not really needed or if necessary can be referenced more
