Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Color is fundamental to painting and the ability to mix and reproduce specific hues is a key skill. Color theory can be dull and complicated; but in 500 Acrylic Mixes experienced artist and teacher Sharon Finmark demonstrates color mixing with acrylic paints in a practical and easy-to-follow way. A variety of color-mixing techniques are covered, including palette mixing, impasto, and overlaying.

In addition to being an extensive visual sourcebook to more than 500 acrylic paint color mixes, paintings are featured throughout, each of which is accompanied by a breakdown of the colors, mixes, and techniques used to achieve a specific effect.

Whether youre a longtime student of the studio or simply searching for a few perfect hues, 500 Acrylic Mixes will show you how to create color palettes youll love!
