This expertly written, hands-on guide demonstrates something that more and more watercolorists are discovering for themselves—that acrylics can do everything watercolor paints can do, and much more!

Beginning painters will find in this clearly written, profusely illustrated text expert advice on painting and equipment, along with step-by-step coverage of papers and other painting surfaces, colors and mediums; and descriptions of all the basic watercolor techniques: washes, wet-in-wet, drybrush, scumbling, opaque painting, and more. Professionals unfamiliar with this medium will discover that acrylic paints introduce a new level of excitement, flexibility, and color to their work.

To demonstrate the extraordinary variety of watercolor techniques possible with acrylic paints, this book includes 75 paintings by leading American watercolorists. In addition, five special, step-by-step demonstrations reveal the rich potential of acrylic colors and color combinations, and show how they behave with various mediums. Altogether, Acrylic Watercolor Painting presents a comprehensive picture of the creative potential of these versatile paints and reveals how they can open new worlds to the serious artist working in watercolors.
