The book covers all aspects of acrylic painting and shows a huge variety of techniques: oil style, watercolour style and a combination of the two, using additives and things such as plastic food wrap and bubble wrap to produce effects, and even a technique unique to Wendy. It offers expert advice in an accessible form, with over 150 beautiful and instructive illustrations.

Renowned artist, instructor and author, Wendy Jelbert, shares her years of experience with a wide variety of techniques in this book packed full of tips for acrylic painters. Dealing first with the materials needed, she goes on to show how acrylics can be used with watercolour or oil techniques, or with a combination of the two - there is even a technique unique to Wendy herself.

The tips are clearly presented and explained, and illustrated by many beautiful and accomplished paintings as well as some step by step photographs. They will help to demystify this incredibly versatile medium both for those new to painting and also for more experienced painters on the lookout for tips on using acrylics.
