Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Packed full of helpful hints for fans of the medium, this book is the acrylic painters guide to success. Demonstrating a wide variety of methods, the handbook outlines essential materials before illustrating how acrylics can be used with watercolor or oil techniques—or a combination of the two—and even a technique of the authors own creation. Innovative suggestions for incorporating additives and uncommon items, such as plastic food and bubble wrap, are also included along with tips on mixing colors, using tone, creating space and distance, and painting trees, skies, water, coastal scenes, flowers, and more. Pointers are clearly explained and illustrated by many beautiful and accomplished paintings as well as step-by-step photographs. Demystifying this incredibly versatile medium, this is a must-have for beginning and experienced acrylic painters alike.
