5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure to learn with this comprehenisve guide., 9 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Acrylic School: A Practical Guide to Painting with Acrylic (Hardcover)
Hazel Harrison has managed to give a really comprehensive guide in 'Acrylics School'. It would be difficult to think of any aspect of using this medium that has been overlooked.
I liked the fact that Hazel does'nt always suggest the most expensive option in the "What you will Need" section as it is so easy to waste materials when starting out. In this section different acrylic mediums are demystified and a fairly limited palette suggested.
Throughout the book important points are highlighted by coloured stripes, this focuses attention when working through the exercises. Another detail which makes this book an outstanding learning tool.
There are some useful points on perspective, distance, space and composition which are of general interest and there is an excellent section showing how different artists interpret the same still life.
However the learner-painter wishes to use acrylics this attractive and well presented book should make the learning process a pleasure and, hopefully, lead to success - through hard work of course!

5.0 out of 5 stars Variety of artists work., 28 April 2009
By 
Morgan Le Fay (Farnham, Surrey, UK) - See all my reviews
The use of a variety of artists work, rather than just using the authors works, enhances the value of this book. By analysing the methods of other artists the guide becomes more of a tutorial.
