Joy of Acrylic Painting

Expressive Painting Techniques for Beginners

Annie O Gonzales


This guide offers an engaging, streamlined approach for any beginner, but especially those who – due to life detours or lack of time – have previously postponed their artistic aspirations.

In a fun, instantly gratifying style, the author combines the forgiveness of acrylics with the approachability of expressive painting. With special emphasis on the elements of colour, pattern and texture, these lessons give you a jump-start on painting with feeling. Features include:

  • Strategies for gathering resonant ideas and inspiration
  • Practical advice, such as when to splurge and where to save on painting supplies
  • Mixed-media techniques for creating character in your paintings
  • Inspiration from expressionist masters, including ways to use their work as a jumping-off point for your own original paintings
  • 8 fabulous start-to-finish painting projects – landscapes, still life, figures and abstracts
