Get all you need to know about acrylic painting in one book, perfect for first-time painters or anyone interested in building their skills! This unique book is a complete course in acrylic painting, built up from key techniques. As the reader progresses through the sections of the book, the author demonstrates each technique with the creation of a mini painting, measuring 5-inch square. So by the time a reader has worked right through to the end, they will have an amazing collection of 50 mini paintings, on board, paper, or canvas, that will be a testament to their skill and creativity. The subject matter for these squares varies from abstracts and simple color mixing exercises, through to figurative subjects: a flower, a sunset, a busy street scene - and many more. These can be mounted, exhibited, or simply collected in a portfolio, or given away as gifts for friends to cherish. The book is ideal for anyone coming to acrylics for the first time, or keen to improve their skills, and who is sometimes daunted by the thought of filling a large empty canvas or blank piece of board. Instead, it will free painters from creative hang-ups, and replace them with an addictive desire to create that next 5-inch square!
