The Acrylic Painter by James Van Patten


Honestly, this is not a good introduction to acrylic painting. Yes, I liked the cover, but after only a few pages in, I realized that this book was not going to be a light, fun learn about acrylic painting. I expected this book to be more about cute techniques and creating fun images, but it turned out to much more dreary than that. If you are looking for a book about acrylic painting that focuses more on how to create realistic paintings instead of abstract, this might be the book you want. I couldn't get past all the technical jargon to find the real content of the book. Not a good starting book for beginner painters.

I received this book free for review from Blogging for Books.
