Aspiring artists looking to dabble in a new creative vehicle or who want to start painting acrylic portraits of their favorite flowers — such as stargazer lilies, poppies in a cornfield, or flowers in a classic Venetian window box — stand to benefit from each of the confidence-building projects in this book. Wendy Jelbert makes acrylics easy to master in this comprehensive guide that exhibits their versatility and vibrancy.
Covering everything from flowers depicted in a formal still life to wildflowers in their natural landscape, this introductory guide requires no prerequisite drawing skills. Full-size pull-out tracing papers for five projects are provided, and useful hints and tips accompany Jelbert’s detailed step-by-step instructions.
Wendy Jelbert is a teacher and professional artist who works in pastels, oils, acrylics, inks, and watercolors.
