Hiring a professional interior designer or painter costs a fortune, and you're often left with a cold and calculated look predetermined by what is "popular" in other people's homes. Instead of paying big bucks for what other people want, trust your own instincts and do it yourself. Not only will you save money but you'll have fun painting and enjoy the satisfaction of doing it yourself. The irrepressible Sunny Goode explores how decorative painting can work for children’s rooms—with happy results that will delight any kid. She’s created imaginative, fun rooms for little babies, for playing and growing in (ages 4?8), and for thinking and dreaming (designed for 9?12 year-olds). These are bright, safe, and personal spaces of color and lightness. Goode shows how to embellish a nursery with marching elephants or cheerful dots, wrap a girl’s room in bands of vivid color, and create a ?creature feature” pattern with blue alligators. An introduction discusses paint basics, and illustrated ?You Can Do It!” sections interspersed throughout present important techniques. The titles in this practical series are superbly suited to help readers become familiar with the most essential techniques of drawing, painting and design. They are tailor-made for a quick and practical introduction. In each book, numerous examples will inspire readers to explore their own potential for creative expression. Tools, materials and other aids are thoroughly explained. The step-by-step approach clarifies the phases of each technique and gives helpful suggestions for further development of the learned methods. In addition, insightful analysis of great works of art divulges the tricks and secrets of the masters.
