I started working through 'Canvas Remix' today. I bought this book off Amazon last week, as it is by Alisa Burke, the artist who sparked my interest with the magazine article on Grafatti painting. The book is quite a disappointment. The paint techniques are mostly a rehash of the common ones in almost every book, along with some that are so incomplete they are difficult to follow. The projects give one just enough info to trully get into trouble. But, since I spent the dollars, decided to start with these techniques. Again, nothing really new ... but practice with blending and spattering proved entertaining. Added bits to several of the pages and created a first start on another half dozen.
