Readers will learn how to use acrylics to create a wide variety of effects in everything from non-representational works to painterly realism to photorealism. Van Patten offers guidance on materials, tools, processes, balance, and composition and focuses on effectively using colour in painting. Replete with detailed step-by-step technical demonstrations and a catalogue of inspiring works by notable past and contemporary artists, as well as the author and his students, The Acrylic Painter provides a classic art instruction manual for painters of all abilities.
