How To Paint Flowers in Acrylics Book with Tim Fisher
- Product Info
Acrylic is a popular and versatile medium and this handy little book brings to it a favourite subject that deserves a further look that will help you to get started.
After a brief survey of materials, Tim introduces some basic techniques and looks at tone and colour, with some notes on mixing in the specific context of flowers. He follows this with some handy ideas on getting started, with advice on sketching and composition. All of this is necessarily brief in order to leave room for the three demonstrations, which form the main meat of the book. In these, Tim shows you in some detail how to paint wild roses, Black-eyed Susans and a more complex subject, a field of poppies. In each, he mainly uses the oil technique, using the paint undiluted straight from the tube and frequently with knives.
All in all this is an excellent start for those wanting to get to get to grips with acrylics.
