Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With this celebration of luminosity and color, artists can see how to use acrylics to catch light, capture mood, and build atmosphere. The inspiration and instructions come from John Hammond, one of the most successful painters in acrylics today. He uses more than 100 of his own paintings—some shown in various stages—to illustrate and explain the techniques and reveal the many possibilities of this flexible and increasingly popular medium. As well as presenting an overview of materials and methods specific to acrylics, Hammond addresses issues of composition, color, and texture; deals with working on location; and discusses a wide variety of themes, including “Water, Boats and Beaches,” “City Views,” “Mediterranean Light,” and “Figures in Light and Shade.”

Synopsis:

This title provides a basic overview of the materials and techniques specific to acrylics and addresses issues such as composition, colour and texture. It also looks at working on location and discusses themes that include "water, boats and beaches", "city views" and "figures in light and shade".
