9781440341274: AcrylicWorks 3: Celebrating Texture (AcrylicWorks: The Best of Acrylic Painting)

Fresh from the studios of 100 leading artists...125+ beautiful lessons on making texture work!

Acrylics are an incredibly versatile medium, perfect for achieving everything from delicate petals to shadows cast across a crumbling brick wall to mesmerizing reflections in the chrome bumper of a '54 Packard. In the hands of today's top artists, there is no limit to the possibilities.

The third volume in the world's premier acrylic art competition book series, AcrylicWorks 3 explores how more than 100 contemporary artists celebrate texture, often through the most humble and unexpected of subjects.

Witness happy accidents and unpredictable textures that result from pouring, marbling, or mixing acrylic with pastel, powders and gels. And see other artists deliberately create textures using a range of traditional and unconventional methods. These pages showcase masterful applications of dry brush, glazing, scraping in, knifing on, collage work, sponging, stamping, a multitude of acrylic mediums, and so much more.

Filled with rampant invention and a whatever-works mindset, AcrylicWorks 3 is a fiercely original showcase of this most adventurous medium.

An artist-to-artist show-and-tell!

  • Features 127 beautifully reproduced paintings
  • Every piece is accompanied by artist commentary on inspiration, techniques and aha moments
  • Showcases a diversity of styles presented in subject-themed chapters, including landscapes, portraits, still lifes, animals and abstract art

"Peeling paint. Weather-beaten woodwork. Rusted ironworks. Crumbling plaster. This is the imagery that fascinates me. Distressed architecture tells so many stories... Acrylics let me paint the layer upon layer needed to 'coax out' the relentless, intractable dynamic of aging." --Misty Martin (p 24)

"As I continued adding texture and paint, the interesting ridges and shapes started to symbolize the layers of life--sometimes smooth, sometimes rough. Each successive layer led me closer to my 'aha' moment." --Terri Duncan (p 123)
