Overview


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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The step-by-step approach builds skills, while the color illustrations leave no room for confusion."
--The Midwest Book Review
Library Journal
In this latest title in Barron's "Creative Techniques" painting series, Guasch and AsunciĆ³n (coauthors, Form) first outline basic acrylic painting materials, tools, and techniques then present 14 short lessons that will help expand artists' range and stimulate their inventiveness with the medium. Throughout, the book is lushly illustrated with vividly colorful landscape, figurative, and abstract paintings, all painted with acrylics. Many intermediate and experienced artists choose this medium for its versatility, ease of use, and economy relative to oils. This book will well suit that broad group of creative people.
