Small acrylics

Previously published in 2015 as Little Ways to Learn Acrylics, and complementing Wil Freeborn’s Learn to Paint in Watercolour with 50 Small Paintings, comes Learn to Paint in Acrylics with 50 Small Paintings by Mark Daniel Nelson. This super book offers a complete course in acrylic painting. Progressing through the book, each technique covered is illustrated by a mini painting – no more than 5in. square – which you are encouraged to copy so that, by the end of the course, not only have you learnt the techniques of acrylic painting, but you also have 50 paintings to show for it. Subjects range from simple colour mixing exercises to flowers, street scenes, still lifes and abstracts.

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to a summer of drawing and painting with Leisure Painter. This month we tackle summer landscapes, gardens and flowers, buildings, harbours and boats, animals, local scenes, a moonlit seascape, horses and a flamenco dancer in a variety of your favourite media. If you're ready to try something different, experiment with oil pastel resists with acrylic inks and watercolour, look at coloured grounds for mixed-media work and embrace digital with an app that will help you draw and paint better pictures! From loose and lively to detail, monotone to colour work, and projects from photographs to how to paint from life - enjoy another month of practical tutorials, demonstrations and inspiration.
