Vibrant Acrylics Book with Hashim Akib





SAA Price

Member Price Tooltip


This exciting book from first-time author Hashim Akib, 2009 SAA Artist of the Year, is much more about the process of painting than it is about the mechanics of applying paint. As Hashim says, "The best tool for learning to paint is to paint", and his colourful and fluent artworks can't fail to encourage you to do just that.

The book is filled with tips and demonstrations, but also with light, colour and urgency that all fully justify the use of Vibrant in the title. Hashim paints in a heavy impasto style that creates a sense of movement and vitality to subjects that include landscapes, portraits, buildings and animals. Intriguingly, he also works from a coloured ground that sets off the overpainting that follows, bringing everything forward as a result and giving real depth to light and shade.

In the portrait project, Hashim describes the importance of acclimatising to the scene by creating colour layers, giving depth and texture. His urban-scape project is a great example of how to break a complex scene down into simple, manageable shapes.
