For the aspiring artist who works ventures towards abstract painting or mixed media, Pat Dew's "Let's Get Started Finishing" is a inspirational gold-mine. Pat takes us through the process of completing several paintings that are still in-process and. In doing this, the viewer is helped to develop an eye towards seeing how abstract shapes, colors and textures can be mixed and altered in order to bring a painting to its fullest expression.
In the DVD's 11 chapters we are shown briefly how to start a painting in order to get a stronger sense of how to finish. Other chapters explore cropping, altered surfaces, collage, scraping and strata. "Lets Get Started Finishing" is filled with many other tips and techniques that will help us take our very own paintings to the imaginary "finish line".
