Boost your creativity and learn to paint with everyday materials, like coffee, tea, and flame, with The Organic Painter.

Bored with the same old paints?

The Organic Painter introduces innovative techniques for using non-traditional 'paint' derived from materials like coffee, tea, and alcohol, to encourage freedom and expression! Traditional art supplies will only take you so far! Sometimes you need to try something completely new and different.

That's where The Organic Painter comes in. With a little guidance, you'll soon be painting with everyday materials you'd never considered as an artistic medium. This inspiring book gives you all the techniques and ideas you'll need to boost your creativity, learn natural paint-making, and be more resourceful with your art materials.

Imagine the unique things you'll make when you create natural paints from coffee, tea, and berries. Each project in this guide book comes with instructions on how to make the paint, and also includes experiments and explorations for you to try.

Plus, a simple painting accompanies each featured material and combines it with other materials or techniques, so you'll never lack inspiration.

Working primarily with calligraphy inks, graphite, and liquids, such as tea, Carne Griffiths' fascination with drawing focuses on the creation and manipulation of the drawn line.

Carne produced intricate designs for the military, film and theatre, fashion, and advertising industries. His designs were used for the uniforms in the films Valkyrie and The Last King of Scotland and his 'Red Death Coat' embroidery design was used in the film version of The Phantom of the Opera.

In 2017, Carne's portrait of HRH The Duchess of Cambridge raised £30,000 in aid of the Anderson Foundation.
