Modern Acrylic delivers the simple concepts and painting techniques you’ll need to create exciting and expressive works of art.

With Modern Acrylic, artists, illustrators, art students, and art hobbyists can learn how to use basic painting techniques and concepts to create expressive works of art. You’ll learn to paint flowers, animals, patterns, and even how to transfer your hand-lettering skills to paint. This guide offers a lively and creative approach to acrylic paint packed with inspiring exercises and whimsical projects.

Foremost a beginner’s guide, Modern Acrylic starts with a brief introduction to the tools you’ll need and continues with explanations of key painting concepts like color mixing and atmospheric perspective. Once you have a handle on the basics, it’s time to create dynamic color palettes, use basic shapes and techniques to render a range of subjects, and practice mark making and textures.

Modern Acrylic is an inspiring and accessible guide to painting everything from expressive landscapes to colorful architectural gems.

My Net Galley Review : This Sunday’s book is a great book exploring  Acrylics . Rather you are a hobbyist or professional artist you will enjoy this book. As the author ex plains  it all from  basics skills to more difficult  skills it has it all, Done with great illustrations and pictures it will  get you painting.  If you are like me and just dabble in acrylics ( a hold over from high school)  but interested in knowing more . I highly recommend  reading this book. You will be inspired to paint your next master piece    Lisa
