This comprehensive book shows how today's artists are using acrylic (often a substitute for oil paint or watercolor) to produce works of art that are incredibly diverse in styles and subjects. Acrylic Innovation is loaded with original artwork presented in glorious color photographs, plus valuable insight from 64 artists, each using acrylic in unique ways to create expressive and personal art.
