I'm happy to announce that my abstract art is included in a new art book published by North Light Books, titled Acrylic Innovation: Styles and Techniques Featuring 64 Visionary Artists.
This 144-page book by Nancy Reyner detailed many fascinating ways to use acrylics - and most of these techniques will be ones you've never heard of! Even though I've been using acrylics for years, even as I flip through the book I stumble upon new ideas that I can't wait to try out.
If you're seeking inspiration, this book will help you tread new ground in your acrylic paintings, by encouraging experimentation. The book covers a range of styles, spanning from realism to abstraction and everything in between.
Some techniques include: the use of texture, masking techniques, working with glazes, playing with perspective, and many more. Artist interviews are included to provide insight into some of the many different working processes.
Acrylic Innovation: Styles and Techniques Featuring 64 Visionary Artists is a treasure trove of new ideas that will be inspiring for artists at any level. For the total beginner, this book may be overwhelming, but it will also open a newbie's eyes to the myriad possibilities of working with acrylics.
Plus, it has my work in it. Can't go wrong there! :)
You can also learn about some of the ways in which I use acrylics in my art instructional website, Art is Fun.
