Author(s): Terry Harrison
Terry Harrison shows how to paint landscapes in acrylics using a range of simple brush techniques, and the author's own range of brushes. He introduces the brushes, which he has designed to carry out specific techniques, and also explains which other materials are required, including using a limited palette of paint colours. He then describes what each of the brushes is suitable for, before going on to explain acrylic painting techniques such as painting a tree close-up, painting reflections and snow, creating distance and using texture pastes, glaze medium and palette knives. There are six beautiful demonstrations with easy to follow text and step by step photographs, covering popular Terry Harrison subjects: a summer landscape, a winter scene, a coastal view, a landscape with a barn, a Venetian scene and a beautiful building covered in wisteria. Readers who loved Terry's Brush with Acrylics will enjoy this all new title, in which Terry's brushes are put through their paces in a completely new range of illustrations and demonstrations.
