Acrylic Painting for the Beginner
by Frederic Taubes

"Acrylic colors are the newest and most exciting medium in painting today. In this companion volume to his famous "Oil Painting for the Beginner", Frederic Taubes explores the nature of acrylic colors--their permanence and chemical behavior--and then discusses the materials and equipment required, including supports and how to prepare them; brushes and painting knives; diluents, varnishes, and solvents; and, finally, suggested colors. Taubes also shows how to use acrylics in glazes, scumbles, and in opaque and impasto techniques; in painting still life, flower studies, landscapes, portraits, figures, and murals; and in mixed-media techniques--working oil paint over a day acrylic underpainting to achieve texture, highlights, flesh tones, or transparent, brilliant color. This clearly written, informative book is invaluable to students and artists wishing to broaden their painting techniques through the use of acrylic colors. The book is richly illustrated, with twenty-six color plates, seventy-three black-and-white drawings and photographs, and twenty-four step-by-step demonstrations."
