The Acrylic Artist's Bible

  • Description
  • Reviews

The complete manual for acrylic painting. Marylin Scott provides over 100 step-by-step demonstrations showing how to tackle tricky subjects, accompanied by full-colour photography.

Even though, acrylic is used by many well-known professional artists, it is rather less popular with amateurs. This is surprising, because acrylic is not only the most versatile of all the painting media, but is also highly forgiving. You can paint out mistakes as you work, even making major changes to the colour scheme and composition. Each new painting can become a springboard for ideas and the range of different effects is vast.

- Complete information on materials and techniques, with full-colour photographs and step-by-step demonstrations
- Over 100 visual sequences give advice on how to paint tricky subjects, from skies and water to faces and figures

192 page paperback.

  • Very detailed - The Acrylic Artist's Bible

    Very detailed and a good but; something I can refer to at a later date. But personally, it is above my head considering I am very much a beginner. I feel out of my depth. But I shall definitely keep it. Tasha M. (London, United Kingdom) on 29 Apr 2020
