Following the success of his previous book, Nelson (Learn to Paint in Acrylics with 50 Small Paintings) presents 50 new small canvas projects as he walks aspiring artists through the process of painting with acrylics. Chapter 1 introduces the basic materials, tools, and techniques, such as representing light and shadow and applying the paint. The author provides insight into the selection of brushes, preparing the canvas, layout, and transferring drawings to the surface prior to painting. Each subsequent chapter focuses on specific techniques while walking through small-scale projects. Step-by-step instruction guides readers through Nelson’s simplified approach. By the end of the 50th painting, they will have gained valuable knowledge on interpreting subjects with acrylic paints.
VERDICT Any novice painter should be able to complete each project in this guide and be proud of what they accomplished.
