The versatility of acrylics has made it one of the most popular media among amateur artists. Here Soraya French explores the medium in detail, encouraging readers to work with acrylics creatively and to experiment with different techniques to achieve exciting and dramatic effects.
Exploring the medium of acrylics in detail, Soraya French explains the various types of acrylics - paints and inks - and the different ways they can be used, covering the techniques for both watercolour and opaque style.
With the use of practical exercises, studio tips and step-by-step demonstrations, French focuses on a broad range of subjects, from flowers and still life, to animals, birds and landscapes. She also introduces the works of several other professional artists to provide a broader view of different styles of acrylic painting.
