Acrylics are versatile and can be used in many different ways; they also have unique qualities and can be painted on to canvas, paper, wood or board. Using a sequence of inspirational pictures and specially commissioned step-by-step photographs, Wendy Jelbert shows how to use this medium to create pure acrylic, scumbling and impasto effects, blended washes, glazes of colour and more. She takes you through all the stages of creating a painting, from the basic brushwork to final details, illustrating how to capture light and shade, tone and form.
