Big Book of Acrylic Painting
Lee Hammond

North Light • £12.99 (£16.99 non-members) • LHAPB • 192 pages • Paperback

You can almost guess what this is from the title! If you haven’t encountered her before, Lee Hammond is a versatile painter who is good on all the subjects she covers, which include still lifes, landscapes, animals and people.

Each of these has a section to itself and there’s also a comprehensive technical introduction that includes a run-through of tools and equipment, a handy guide to understating colour and a good grounding in basic techniques. In fact, the section on People goes into so much detail about the elements and structure of the human face that it's almost a manual of portraiture in itself.

Mainly intended to be an introduction to the medium, it also goes into more depth than some similar titles and you’ll find it a handy book even if you have a little more experience. If you want to discover the wealth of possibilities offered by acrylics, there's nothing better than this substantial offering.
