Incredible Acrylics:

Techniques, Ideas and New Ways to Use This Versatile Medium

Incredible Acrylics is a complete reference work on this popular painting medium. Highly contemporary in style, it includes numerous stunning close-up photographs that the contemporary painter and renowned photographer Jean-Paul van Boxtel shot specially for this book.

The first part of the book answers the question "What is acrylic paint?" and describes the various products that are available. Following is a gallery section, providing examples of paintings that show the wide range of styles and finishes possible using acrylic paints.

The author also guides readers step-by-step through 16 workshops, each of which uses a different set of materials, so that artists can learn how to create their own beautiful paintings, including still lifes, landscapes, architecture, portraits, and abstract art.

Throughout, the author introduces many innovative techniques and applications for this incredibly versatile paint — and also covers in detail the latest trends, including gels and media.

Careful attention is paid to health and safety throughout the book, and a useful chart at the end introduces readers to the range of colors from which they can put together their own palette.

The author's stunning close-up photography is a major feature of this book, making it a feast for the eyes as well as a highly informative reference.

Author — Jean-Paul van Boxtel.
