Terry Harrison presents a refreshingly simple guide that is packed with excellent, easy-to-follow demonstrations illustrating how to create stunning paintings. Acrylics are easy to master and extremely versatile. Paint can be applied thick like oils, or in washes like watercolour. Also, techniques can be mixed to create unusual and different effects. Using a range of brushes, Terry explores all these different techniques showing how to capture atmosphere, texture and detail. He paints a selection of beautiful landscapes, seascapes and buildings with ease, showing how to apply colour to produce stunning pictures of atmospheric skies, mist covered rivers, vibrant fields of flowers, rustic buildings, calm estuaries and more. With many hot tips and a wealth of practical advice, Terry presents an inspiring sequence of step-by-step demonstrations which aim to build up skills and encourage the artist to create their own original paintings.
