Description

The best acrylic artists competition showcase!

Color has the power to demand attention, quicken the heart and transport us to another place and time. The virtuosos featured in AcrylicWorks 4 have successfully employed acrylic paint to capture and use that power to magnificent effect.

This brilliant collection features 127 paintings from modern-day acrylic artists. The artists themselves reveal acrylic painting ideas, tips and secrets, sharing how they play colors against each other–light and dark, bright and soft, delicate glazes and bold impasto–to make their paintings sing. They share secrets for creating mood, capturing a subject’s personality and conveying the spirit of an animal in the wild. And how they approach subjects ranging from a shock of sunset sky, to the liquid ripples of antique glass, to purely abstract color play.

It’s the kind of collection that reminds artists why they paint and gives art lovers a real appreciation for the breathtaking possibilities of this most versatile medium.

"Color is the very soul and spirit of a painting." –Diana Lee, p75
