If you have ever wanted to learn to paint, but lacked the confidence to start, then Acrylics for the Absolute Beginner is the book for you.

A comprehensive course in landscape painting with acrylics by popular author and tutor Charles Evans. Charles' no-nonsense techniques and engaging writing style bring acrylic painting within the grasp of anyone keen to get started in this versatile and popular medium.

The book begins with excellent advice for the beginner, including easy drawing for painting, composition, easy perspective, light and shade, colour, and how to use acrylics with different painting styles. There are six full step-by-step painting projects ranging from simple skies to snowy landscapes with horses, each of which is supported by additional exercises and techniques.

The step-by-step projects allow aspiring artists to put into practice their new-found skills, and produce six stunning paintings of their own, in a range of styles. A pull-out outline drawing is provided for every project, and Charles shows how to transfer these onto the painting surface. Charles' accessible and irreverent style makes learning to paint with acrylics easy and fun.

Take the first step to painting with acrylics with this easy-to-follow course on producing fantastic artworks quickly and easily. 

Charles Evans' expert practical advice and simple step-by-step approach will quickly get you painting. With practical and clear advice on using acrylics with oil and watercolour techniques, and a variety of subjects, this is an invaluable guide for any aspiring artist.
