Venice is probably the most painted city in the world, with its exquisite façades and endless subjects for artists. The five demonstrations in this book offer an in-depth course for beginners that captures the essence and beauty of this magnificent city using the versatility of acrylics.
Wendy Jelbert makes acrylics easy to use in this step-by-step guide that includes practical tips, detailed instructions, and exciting techniques for painting Venice’s Rialto Bridge, the Grand Canal, gondolas, reflections, stunning architecture, and more.
No drawing skills are required. Instead, artists use six full-size reusable tracings to apply directly to the painting surface. The focus is purely on acquiring the painting skills needed to build up confidence and to create truly inspiring paintings.
Wendy Jelbert is a teacher and professional artist who works in pastels, oils, acrylics, inks, and watercolors. She enjoys experimenting with different ways of using mixed media and texture, and her sometimes unconventional methods often produce surprising and original results. Jelbert lives in Andover, England.
