An inspiring sequence of step-by-step demonstrations will build up skills and enable artists to create their own original paintings. A section on mixing colours is also included, as well as a chapter on the different types of brushes used in the projects. This book will encourage artists to try out the techniques demonstrated and create stunning paintings.
Terry Harrison grew up in Norfolk. His early art education was basic and he never dreamed that he would become an artist. At fifteen, Terry moved to Hampshire and was inspired by a brilliant art teacher. He took O and A levels in art, then won a place at Farnham Art School at the age of sixteen. He became a graphic artist, but continued to paint in his spare time. In 1984 Terry gave up his job to paint full time. He demonstrates to artists' groups and teaches on painting holidays. He has also developed a range of his own brushes and paints. He is the author of many best selling books on painting with acrylics and watercolours. Terry now lives in the Cotswolds.
