Terry's Top Tips for Acrylic Artists
Renowned painter, Terry Harrison gets to grips with acrylics, bringing you 115 tips to make you a better painter. Find out all about the possibilities of this versatile medium. How to achieve effects, creating texture, the different ways of painting with acrylics and how to look after your brushes and so much more.-KarenPlatt.co.uk The subtitle of this book is "115 essential tips to improve your painting" and this is pretty much what you get. Whether you are a beginner (which this book is also suitable for) or have been painting for some time knowing some of these tricks of the trade can make all the difference. These tips cover a vast range of topics, from what to buy and how to look after it to capturing your chosen subject on canvas. Short, snappy captions to photographs tell the reader quickly and simply what to do (or not to do) to enhance your work. A typical chapter has some essential facts beneath the heading and several photographs, each with some useful information. Subjects covered include working from photographs, using additives to achieve texture, painting various things realistically and what you actually need to own (and what you don't). It doesn't take long to read the book but what it says tends to stay in the mind, mainly due I think to its clever layout and lack of pages filled with just words; it is a book on art, after all. Acrylics are not like other paints, and lack the long pedigree of oils or watercolors so a whole book on how to use them is a useful purchase. Obviously there is more to it all than can be covered in one small book but you can learn a lot of useful things in here. The spiral spine that enables the book to lay open flat while you work is a plus as well.-Myshelf.com Following on from the success of his previous book (Terry's Top Tips for Watercolour Artists), this acrylic version offers 115 tips to becoming a better artist in the medium. The seasoned tutor keeps his instructions short and sweet, ranging from preparing your brush for work to demonstrating what techniques can be used to lead viewers into a scene.-Artists & Illustrators Terry Harrison is among the best there is at explaining the technical process of painting and he's also a very generous teacher, unafraid to share his many personal secrets. This series from Search Press is developing nicely and they've done well to be selective about who they get to contribute to it, because it's an easy format to do, but a hard one to get right. You get a good range of topics here, including painting from photographs, the use of additives. skies, foregrounds, trees, mountains, water and coastal scenes. There are plenty of illustrations with the text confined to simple captions that give you just the essential information so that you know what you're looking at.-Artbookreview.net Search Press's Top Tips series provides concise information in a very functional pocket-sized spiral-bound format. There are four titles so far, including this latest from well-known artist and author Terry Harrison. This broadly follows the layout of the others in the series, beginning with an introduction for beginners on what materials to buy, followed by guidance on how to transfer a drawing onto the paper or canvas ready to paint. Brief information is given on how to mix greens for landscape painting, before advice on how to use photographs and then get started. With acrylic being such a versatile medium, Harrison shows various methods of applying the paint, from watercolour and oil techniques, through to using additives such as texture paste, and more unusual materials such as eggshells and sawdust. Alongside this, he shows less traditional methods, such as using sponges or credit cards. The last third of the book is devoted to exploring, in turn, the various possible elements within a landscape painting. These include, amongst others, skies, fields, f --karenplatt.co.uk
