How to Paint: Acrylics

Peter Jay taps into his own experience to explain how to create beautiful paintings in acrylics, from preparing the surface and drawing the scene, to blocking in, building up layers, and adding finer details.

Jay’s love for landscape painting draws beginners and experienced artists alike to acrylics. The book includes clear advice on sketching and using photographs, simple lessons in composition and perspective, four step-by-step demonstrations, and a number of Jay’s inspirational paintings.

Peter Jay first studied painting and drawing at Beckenham and then at St. Martin’s School of Art in England. After a short career in advertising and a longer career in textiles, he moved to the country to paint full-time. Based near England’s Sussex coast, he explored and painted the wilder areas of the surrounding countryside, with a particular interest in wildflowers. Beach scenes with endless sands or rock pools have been a recent source of inspiration. In 2007, Jay moved to Somerset, England, and is now inspired by the countryside there. For his seaside fix, he has discovered the nearby “Jurassic” coastline with its plentiful fossils. He exhibits mainly in the South of England, and has exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition on a number of occasions.
