In 55 straightforward projects, Anita will show you how to use the particular properties of acrylics to achieve these aims. She explores colour, texture, mediums, collage, glazing and underpainting as well as the use of
shape, form, pattern and composition. The instructions for each project are simple because the idea is not to replicate the appearance of the example but its spirit.
