Brushstrokes Acrylic Painting

Brushstrokes Acrylic
Brushstrokes: Acrylic Effortless painting with minimal tools and materials by Angela Marie Moulton gives a unique introduction to acrylic painting. We did a few projects following the step-by-step instructions in this book, and love how the paintings turned out. This approach of using colourful bold strokes strategically felt relaxing and fun, and the paintings didn't take too long to do.

Brushstrokes: Acrylic demonstrates how to use just a few thick brushstrokes and creamy paint to create works of art in a bold, effortless style. This technique helps beginning artists build confidence, and the more experienced painters will find this type of painting helpful to loosen up their established style. I found it interesting that the background paint is added last in this artist's approach.

The beginning of the book gives information about the basic tools and materials including surfaces, brushes, and paints, and then an introduction to choosing and mixing colours, choosing the right brushes and paints to create works of art inspired by birds, flowers, animals, and still life. I used a variety of DecoArt Acrylic Paint to do the paintings on canvas. I love working with DecoArt Acrylic, as it is easy to use and has good quality. This book designed for absolute beginners will be available to purchase starting March 3, 2020.
