This book sets out everything the acrylics artist will need to know. It tackles brushes and the no brush approach – using sponges and fingers – before launching into the nuts and bolts of painting. Whether the reader is a novice or an old hand needing a quick refresher course, this step by step book provides essential information on each aspect of a painting. Every artist sometimes needs an expert looking over their shoulder, nudging them in the right direction, making it clear what needs to be done and in what order, and suggesting when to experiment. This book does that.
