Painting: Acrylic Basics

Painting: Acrylic Basics is a tutorial guide to acrylic technique. Anticipated release 7th May 2019 from Quarto on their Walter Foster imprint, it's 40 pages and will be available in paperback format. This is one of a series of technical painting and drawing manuals from Foster which cover specific media, graphite, acrylic, watercolor, etc.

The introduction covers materials, some very basic color theory, and leads into the first of five tutorial projects. These cover technical subjects such as tonal (monochromatic) painting, underpainting, nature, mood, etc.

These are simple booklets, but absolutely packed full of information. The lessons and tutorials are clearly and well illustrated in the lessons and are not too advanced for a keen beginner to incorporate into their own works. They're information dense and classic.

Four stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes
