Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A unique color-mixing wheel on the front cover demonstrates how to combine different shades of acrylic paint to achieve specific tints in this interactive art-instruction manual. The basic principles of color mixing and application are covered and the equipment and materials needed to get started are described. This guide also contains eight step-by-step projects featuring some of the most rewarding acrylic techniques such as building up color, glazing, painting alla prima, painting with a palette knife, and using tone. From landscapes and still lifes to people and the natural world, a spin of the color wheel on the front of this innovative book produces immediately visible results that clearly show how to produce quality acrylic art.
