Overview


Written for intermediate-level painters who have some previous experience with acrylics, this book encourages artists and art students to work creatively with acrylics by experimenting with fresh techniques. Author and artist Soraya French explains methods of using both acrylic paints for brilliant opaque effects and acrylic inks to produce translucent washes that resemble watercolors. She demonstrates specific aspects of painting, such as shape and form, color, the design element, dramatic lighting effects, and semi-abstract techniques. The subjects she treats in this book include flowers, still life, animals and birds, human figures, urban and rural landscapes, and seascapes. Practical exercises, projects, studio tips, and step-by-step demonstrations fill this book, which also features the work of several guest artists to show contrasting styles of acrylic painting. Approximately 150 color illustrations.

Here, she explores experimental techniques with scumbling, dry-brush, impasto, and sgraffito to create work that bridges impressionistic and expressionistic styles.
