Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"With such a unique approach there is always a danger that step-by-step projects will lead to slavish emulation, but the ones here really do give you a chance to put all Glyn's ideas into your own practice." —The Artist (January 2013)

"Glyn is remarkably good at explaining what he does and why he does it. There are demonstrations here and, although they ought to feel stilted, they're actually as fresh and inspiring as the man himself." —Paint (January 2013)

Library Journal
Macey, who strives for freedom in his work and is inspired by a more childlike approach to making art, is a bit of an evangelist for this particular medium, citing primarily acrylics' versatility in his argument for its superiority over watercolor or oil paint. The guide includes sections on materials, color, technique, composition, getting started, and projects. The technique section is quite thorough and offers tips for combining acrylic paints with collage, found materials, and text. There are plenty of step-by-step projects for the reader to try. VERDICT Many creative readers will find this forgiving medium and open-ended guide appealing.
