Colorways: Acrylic Animals Review

Colorways: Acrylic Animals

Colorways: Acrylic Animals
Tips, techniques, and step-by-step lessons for learning to paint whimsical artwork in vibrant acrylic


Description
Colorways: Acrylic Animals teaches artists of all skill levels how to paint vibrant, colorful renditions of animals from around the globe.

Grab your paints, canvas, and imagination because it's time to paint pointillistic pandas, tetradic llamas, vibrant flamingos, and complementary cows...and that's just the beginning! Each step-by-step project in Colorways: Acrylic Animals shows you not only how to capture an animal’s likeness, but also how touse color to create magical, other-worldly, and whimsical paintings. You'll also learn how to use acrylic paint to add texture and fanciful flourishes, like florals and collage, to your glorious animal subjects.

Colorways is a brand-new series from Walter Foster teaching artists of all skill levels how to create innovative, inspired artwork that's full of color and imagination. Focusing on creating expressive pieces over realistic scenes, Colorways shows artists how to break the "rules" of color and let their imaginations and artwork soar to new heights. In the Colorways series, flamingos are green, giraffes boast multicolored spots, and raccoons feature blue undertones.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Step by step lessons that are kind of hard, but fun to practice.  While I will never be able to replicate most of the art, there are great tips and the book is visually beautiful to browse.
