A fun and accessible guide to acrylics, featuring step-by-step exercises and advice on technique to help your paintings flourish. Leading painter, teacher and writer Soraya French has distilled her art teaching into the things that matter most and can be digested in a short period of time - in just one afternoon you can start acrylic painting. Learning to paint is one of the life-long aspirations of many of us, and painting with today's acrylics paints has never been easier or more accessible. Acrylics are becoming increasingly popular, especially for beginners because of their versatility and strength of colour. Acrylics can be used thickly like oils, but they dry much more quickly, or they can be watered down to look like watercolour. The author, known for her own vibrant and colourful acrylic paintings, covers equipment and the best colours to buy and shows the different ways of using acrylic to create a range of effects with simple instruction and easy-to-follow exercises. She shows how to use acrylics to paint a range of subjects: flowers and trees, landscapes, cityscapes and people.

Product Description:

This is one of the best introductions to the rewarding medium of acrylics and its many possibilities.

Soraya's no-nonsense approach avoids mystique and technicalities without shortcuts, making it quick and easy to follow. Clear examples and explanatory captions allow you to see whats going on at all times and the concise text tells you what you want to know without overloading you with more information than you need.

Soraya deals with equipment, media, tools and the possibilities of colour as well as techniques for application and working. She explains impasto, blending and glazing as well as composition, colour harmony and the use of texture and gel mediums. Subjects include flowers, figures, water and landscape, making this a truly comprehensive guide.

Soraya paints in a loose, colourful style that has instant appeal and her enthusiasm and clear explanations make you want to pick up your brushes and get started!
