This book is exceptional. It is full of wonderful ideas and help. Most of all it is inspirational and has taken me back to painting with acrylics after I had given up. I have read many books on this subject but this absolutely the best.

Glyn uses acrylics with water to thin the paint. He paints with them like watercolor painting.
These step by step projects use watercolour rough paper rather than canvas. There's not much using acrylics straight out of the tube in this book. Inviting landscapes,breathtaking seascapes this book contains nine varied step-by-step projects to follow. Full of techniques,methods and ideas. I would of liked to see some projects where the paints are not watered down.

This is a generous book and will doubtless help many to express themselves more loosely with their paints and have fun so doing. There are a lot of 'How to do it' art books out there, and many are awful in my opinion, but this is something different.

I have seen other Glyn Macey books but much prefer this for it gives you more guidelines to his methods and painting techniques. Bold, imaginative and colourful, these acrylics are dynamic. Use acrylics like Glyn to create impressive landscapes and add creativity to your work. This book has nine step-by-step projects. In addition Glyn offers advice on composition, adding movement and many techniques including scumbling, glazing and collage. This review first appeared on yarnsandfabrics website.

I really like this book, so different to all the others I have purchased.

Glyn's made it so easy to follow and I love his "no-nonsense" approach, it makes you think how easy it is to get lovely results.

I followed his tips and got quite a good result with one painting. His tips on using everyday objects to create different textures was inspiring and I will certainly try these, I am already building up my "treasure box".

His sense of humour comes across fantastic and you know by reading his comments how much he loves painting. It was well worth the purchase.
Thank you Glyn.
