14 Distinctive Approaches to Acrylic Painting with More Than

100 Creative Ideas

This book will inspire serious students to expand their repertory of techniques and explore fourteen entirely different approaches to acrylic painting that were pioneered by world famous artists. Students will find step-by-step instructions for each approach. Next they are encouraged to progress beyond simply copying the styles of others by adapting elements from different approaches to create a language that is distinctively their own. Illustrations of representative paintings include original works by distinguished artists as different from each other as the French proponent of "raw art" Jean Dubuffet, the American abstract expressionist Morris Louis, and the English Pop artist David Hockney. Well-known works by these and other artists are analyzed and explained in a way that will encourage students to develop exciting and original new modes of personal expression.

"Original title of Spanish book: Acrilico creativo."

Synopsis:

Acrylics is the fourth volume to date in Barron's Creative Techniques series. Written for advanced art students and professionals, each of these titles focuses on a specific medium and demonstrates a variety of different approaches that will produce highly original effects. In many cases, examples of works by well-known artists are presented for purposes of demonstration. Acrylics are plastic-base pigments available in tubes, jars, and even in squeeze bottles. They produce unusually vivid opaque colors and virtually unlimited textural effects. Easy to mix and work with, acrylics have become a favorite medium among many contemporary artists. This book presents step-by-step exercises that demonstrate creative use of acrylics in highly original renderings of landscapes, human figures, cityscapes, abstract paintings, and more. The text is supplemented with hundreds of color photos and illustrations.
