This is one of the best introductions to the rewarding medium of acrylics and its many possibilities.

Soraya's no-nonsense approach avoids mystique and technicalities without shortcuts, making it quick and easy to follow. Clear examples and explanatory captions allow you to see what’s going on at all times and the concise text tells you what you want to know without overloading you with more information than you need.

Soraya deals with equipment, media, tools and the possibilities of colour as well as techniques for application and working. She explains impasto, blending and glazing as well as composition, colour harmony and the use of texture and gel mediums. Subjects include flowers, figures, water and landscape, making this a truly comprehensive guide.

Soraya paints in a loose, colourful style that has instant appeal and her enthusiasm and clear explanations make you want to pick up your brushes and get started!
