The Walter Foster Creative Team is very excited about the August release of The Art of Painting in Acrylic. So excited, in fact, that we had to give you a sneak peek at what's to come.
Waterfall artwork by Darice Machel McGuire
Each vivid painting is accompanied by step by step instructions for how to paint an array of scenes and subjects in all their acrylic glory.
Acrylic is a uniquely distinctive medium, with unparalleled versatility. While it has its own look and feel, it also beautifully mimics other media, such as watercolor, oil, and even pastel. Acrylic paint dries quickly like watercolor but is as permanent as oil and as vibrant as pastel. You can thin acrylic paint with water to create luminous washes, or you can use it straight from the tube to build up thick layers.
Be on the lookout for this beautiful new title in August 2014.

If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
