Painting Step-by-Step

Acrylic Painting Step-by-Step

by Wendy Jelbert & Carole Massey

This is a practical and inspiring guide for acrylic artists of all levels of ability, from beginners who want to learn how to paint with acrylics to experienced artists looking for inspiration and ideas. Three well-known artists and authors share their expertise and enthusiasm for this exciting medium, starting with the materials and basic skills you need for painting with acrylics and moving on to more advanced techniques. Wendy Jelbert demonstrates colour mixing and the wonderful effects she creates in her stunning paintings, and David Hyde explores landscapes, from composing landscapes and choosing colours to creating depth and depicting the seasons. Carole Massey shares her love of flower painting and gives expert advice on mixing colours for flowers, using tone, drawing and composition. There are ten easy-to-follow, step-by-step demonstrations with clear photographs and helpful instructions, and many inspirational paintings for readers to admire.
