Book Overview

Get all you need to know about acrylic painting in one book, perfect for first-time painters or anyone interested in building their skills

This unique book is a complete course in acrylic painting, built up from key techniques. As the reader progresses through the sections of the book, the author demonstrates each technique with the creation of a mini painting, measuring 5-inch square. So by the time a reader has worked right through to the end, they will have an amazing collection of 50 mini paintings, on board, paper, or canvas, that will be a testament to their skill and creativity.

The subject matter for these squares varies from abstracts and simple color mixing exercises, through to figurative subjects: a flower, a sunset, a busy street scene - and many more. These can be mounted, exhibited, or simply collected in a portfolio, or given away as gifts for friends to cherish.

The book is ideal for anyone coming to acrylics for the first time, or keen to improve their skills, and who is sometimes daunted by the thought of filling a large empty canvas or blank piece of board. Instead, it will free painters from creative hang-ups, and replace them with an addictive desire to create that next 5-inch square

   Excellent! I'm new to painting and wanted some simple ...
I am new to painting and wanted to find some simple tutorials that were not technically overwhelming or yielded discouraging results because it was too far above my skill level. I am having a wonderful time painting these short projects! I thank you so much for producing this book. I feel like it gives me a solid foundation to build on. I bought my paints and brushes in Amazonas well, and am ready to paint for under $50!

   50 small paintings
I looked at the first painting in the book when I received the book and immediately rushed out to get some acrylic paints to try it because it looked like something I could do, but it was pretty. I have been painting almost every day since I got the book and getting better and better. I look forward to painting when I wake up in the morning. Some of the paintings look pretty important in the beginning, but they teach simple lessons. The paintings get progressively more detailed and more challenging as you go through the book. I think that almost all of them are very interesting paintings. There are a wide variety of painting styles and types of painting, and I really like it. I have never painted with acrylics before, but I have done a little drawing and watercolors off and on for years.

   I love it
The book starts with very helpful suggestions and information about supplies, color and how to approach painting. The lessons themselves are arranged in 3 chapters in increasing complexity, so that skills learned early can be utilized and improved. When I finish the last four lessons, I'm going back and do each of them again, which brings me to my only regret - I wish there were more lessons from this author. He'll create a follow-up? What do you think?

   Great Beginning Course in Acrylic Painting!
I love this book because it helps me explore my very artistic side through acrylic painting. It also has alternative methods if you are not good at drawing. I can 't wait to finish all the projects.

   Great book for beginners!
I have no experience in painting, so I got this book. It took a while to get to my home, which was a downer since I received my goods about 2 weeks before. But I learned from it. I actually've painted something that people recognizes and compliments me on!!! I even persuaded my husband to paint. He made the bread and butter picture. I highly recommend!

   Very enjoyable!
I would love to do a second or even a third book like this with new paintings. I have done all the paintings in this book.

   Combination of incomplete information and misinformation.
This book is not suitable for self-study. You can't go to the art store and pick up the supplies in a single trip. Each new project requires more than is revealed. Why would the author not generate a shopping list for all projects? Yes, it is a good idea to make each painting simple, but one can be simple without being amateurish. It is never too early to be artistic. The paintings seem to introduce a technique as if each is meant to achieve a certain technique. There is no clear discussion about what technique or its variations are introduced, however. Sometimes the instructions even include steps where a painter friend says, NO one does it that way, but it takes a few tries for each project, while you figure out what is missing and wrong from the instructions. This was maybe the intent? If so, it would have been nice to explain this approach to the painting for the Absolute and Utter Beginner for a more grounded approach.
