Painting & Drawing Channel Offer - How To Paint Flowers in Acrylics Book & DVD Set 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.
In the DVD Tim takes you through three complete projects: some white magnolia flowers on a bold background, a field of poppies and some stunning roses. Tim shows you how to use the texture and brightness of the white canvas to bring the magnolias to life, how to use the background colour to create dynamic and intense poppies with a pallet knife, and how using both a brush and pallet knife combination can give texture and depth to rose petals and leaf work.
The DVD also contains a bonus feature where Tim gives you a guided tour through the various ways of using the palette knife. As an ambassador for acrylics, Tim will show you just how easy to work with and versatile acrylics are, and how they are perfect for creating bold, impressionistic flowers.
All in all this set is an excellent start for those wanting to get to get to grips with acrylics.
