Acrylics is the fourth volume to date in Barron’s Creative Techniques series. Written for advanced art students and professionals, each of these titles focuses on a specific medium and demonstrates a variety of different approaches that will produce highly original effects. In many cases, examples of works by well-known artists are presented for purposes of demonstration. Acrylics are plastic-base pigments available in tubes, jars, and even in squeeze bottles. They produce unusually vivid opaque colors and virtually unlimited textural effects. Easy to mix and work with, acrylics have become a favorite medium among many contemporary artists. This book presents step-by-step exercises that demonstrate creative use of acrylics in highly original renderings of landscapes, human figures, cityscapes, abstract paintings, and more. The text is supplemented with hundreds of color photos and illustrations.
