Meet the Artist: Hashim Akib

Fans of Hashim Akib will be delighted to hear the follow up to Vibrant Acrylics has just been published. Painting Portraits in Acrylics is a fantastic, accessible and practical guide to contemporary portraiture. It assumes nothing and starts from the basics, making it suitable for the enthusiastic beginner as well as more advanced artists wanting to improve their skills. The book includes six step-by-step projects along with friendly, in-depth advice on colour palettes, skintone, composition, working from photographs and models, markmaking, lighting, atmosphere and much more.

We caught up with him to find out a bit more about his new book and his life as an artist.

He has exhibited with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, the New English Art Club and Royal Society of Marine Artists at the Mall Galleries in London.
