Ready to Paint in 30 Minutes: Landscapes in Acrylics

by Barry Herniman

This beginner’s guide to painting the landscape in acrylics is ideal if you want to learn to paint but are short on time. Each of the 33 quick-and-easy studies takes no more than 30 minutes, and will teach you how to apply a crucial technique to your work, or paint a particular aspect of the natural landscape. The book also contains 3 larger paintings that demonstrate how to combine the elements learned into vibrant and inspiring landscapes

Build up your skills in easy chunks, learning about form and composition, colour mixing, working with acrylics and capturing the drama of the natural world.

The exercises are all worked at postcard size ideal for a 6 x 4 inch (A6) watercolour pad. All the required tracings are included.
