    Abstract Explorations in Acrylic Painting

    By (author) Jo Toye

    Built around the concepts of play and practice, Jo Toye embraces experimentation and innovation. Focusing on technique, line and “working small,” she shares a host of unusual techniques and works with unusual materials. As many acrylic artists do, Jo creates primarily (but not exclusively) abstract art. Her emphasis on line and the use of line to build an under structure for design and composition is unique, as is her incorporation of “writing” into her paintings. Surely, few acrylic artists have ever thought of painting on a black surface or using razor blades masking fluid pens, applicator bottles or mouth atomizers to create and define line. These simple tools and concepts result in line work that is distinctive. Experimental Techniques in Acrylic Painting also adapts interesting mixed media techniques for use in creating in acrylic. Her takes on stencilling, sponging, masking, rolling paint, and working with gesso are not to be missed. Finally, also unique to this workshop in a book is the use of the small format painting and the emphasis on making “practice samples” that can be referenced at a later time for inspiration and direction in larger paintings.

    Rethinking Acrylic

    By (author) Patti Brady

    Have you ever walked into an art supply store, stood in front of the amazing array of acrylic products and just thrown up your hands in confusion, leaving the store without buying something new to experiment with? If you’ve ever wondered what to do with all those products, then this book is for you. If you’ve been using acrylic in traditional painting forms, in this book you’ll find grand, wild and inventive manipulations of acrylic that will get your creative juices flowing. Compared to more traditional art mediums such as oil and watercolor, acrylic is still in its infancy. But what it lacks in years, it makes up for in its range of use. Acrylics appeared on the market for artists in the late 1940s as a quick-drying alternative to oil paint. In its early manifestations, it dried so quickly that more than a few brushes stuck immediately to the canvas! Although acrylic has been around for more than fifty years, incredible advances continue to be made in the research and development of acrylic polymers and pigments. These advancements are attributable not only to the efforts of a few dedicated chemists, but also to the work of an entire community devoted to acrylic. There are a lot of brilliant minds taking these minute molecules very seriously.
