Synopsis: 101 Textures in Oil & Acrylic features step-by-step instructions for mastering a variety of the most common surfaces, including sand, water, metals, foliage, wood, bark, fabrics, stone, grass, and many more. Each page features two similar textures for readers to paint in oil or acrylic using the easy-to-follow steps. Half the battle of achieving precise, realistic results in oil and acrylic painting comes down to one?s ability to accurately render surfaces and textures?a challenging feat for even experienced artists. Although many art instruction books focus on learning to paint specific subjects, many fall short when it comes to offering instruction on techniques that help one capture textures adequately. In 101 Textures in Oil & Acrylic, experienced and talented artist Mia Tavonatti provides artists with the essential skills required to render realistic surfaces in oil and acrylic. Artists will discover tips and tricks for working with both mediums, as well as a variety of techniques, including blending, layering, working with oil and acrylic mediums, creating an underpainting, and more. In addition to valuable step-by-step instructions, general color recommendations offer a helpful ?get started quick? guide. This helpful guide includes an index for fast and easy reference, while a short gallery at the end of the book shows how various textures represent in finished works of art. With its breadth of coverage, easy-to-follow instruction, and helpful tips, 101 Textures in Oil & Acrylic is a must-have art instruction book for artists of all skill levels and is sure to be referenced time and again.

From the Back Cover: In this essential guide, experienced artist Mia Tavonatti provides readers with the information they need to render a variety of realistic surfaces and textures in oil and acrylic. Divided into six sections covering people; animals & insects; fabrics & textiles; foods & beverages; glass, stone, ceramics, wood & metal; and nature, artists will learn to master everything from sand, water, and grass to fur, feathers, and butterfly wings?step by easy step. Additionally, artists will discover helpful techniques for working with both mediums, while a short artist's gallery demonstrates how many of the featured textures represent in finished paintings.
