Acrylics: Techniques and Tutorials for the Complete Beginner

Painting is one of the most rewarding ways of expressing yourself! It sparks creativity, engages the imagination and relaxes you, which reduces stress levels and leaves you feeling mentally clear and calm.

Most people believe that the ability to paint is a skill you either have or you don't, so although they would like to paint, they lack the confidence to do so. Thankfully, painting can be readily learned with the right teacher to guide you, and a clear approach and encouraging voice are often all that's needed to get you on the right track. 
That's where this book, Acrylics, comes in - Adrian Burrows is an enthusiastic and accomplished artist and teacher who explains the fundamentals of painting with acrylics in a helpful and accessible manner. Adrian shows you what you need in terms of tools and materials, and explains and illustrates all the basic techniques.
