A new, up-to-date edition of the popular and comprehensive encyclopedia by professional artist Hazel Harrison.

Ideal for artists of all skill levels, this exhaustive reference covers a multitude of topics concerning acrylics. The book is divided into two sections: the first provides step-by-step demonstrations that guide artists through a variety of techniques, from basic colour mixing through to creating special effects such as sgraffito and wax resist. The second part focuses on themes, illustrating how individual artists tackle a number of subjects, including landscapes, buildings, portraits, animals, still life and fantasy.

This resource provides a wealth of stimulating ideas to help artists both amateurs and veterans develop their own acrylic style.
