Book Description

Jan 2005 Acrylic Painting Tips & Techniques
Arnold Lowrey presents a lively, inspirational introduction to acrylics which illustrates the versatility and beauty of this wonderful medium. Acrylic paint is easy to use, it dries quickly and many different effects can be created from washes and glazes to exciting textural finishes. It is an ideal medium for anyone starting to paint, but it also offers challenges to the more experienced artist because of its quick drying properties and versatility. Watercolour and oil painting techniques can be used, either on their own, or combined to create paintings full of depth, mood and atmosphere, and there is the added benefit that the paints are watersoluble. Using over 100 step-by-step photographs in a sequence of simple demonstrations, Arnold shows how to paint landscapes, seascapes and buildings, and he also illustrates how to change daylight into night and sunlight into mist using transparent glazing effects. With his help you can create sparkling pictures full of life, atmosphere and depth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Painting with Acrylics- Arnold Lowrey 2 July 2009
By Francie
Format:Paperback
I am a beginner and found the book well laid out and informative.The techniques are explained well. I bought the book after seeing a demonstration by the author. I think you need to know the basics of watercolour painting though to get the best out of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars great beginners book 5 May 2011
Format:Paperback
this is a great book for a beginner like myself but it is not limied to beginners. many of the techniques described and illustrated in the book are the product of an experienced and skilled artist. The descriptions are not too wordy and the step by step guides are invaluable. Higly recommend the book to anyone
