Description

Rejoice in this second volume of 50 mini paintings from Mark Daniel Nelson to practice your painting techniques and add to your portfolio of small works. Actively learn all you need to know about acrylic painting as you create these all-new projects following the illustrated step-by-step instructions.

Like the first book, the prospect and promise are both exciting and addictive. This book explains a range of painting techniques, including creating complex scenes, varying brush strokes, negative space, rendering multiple planes, reflections on metal, and color and how to use it. Each fun project teaches a different technique and adds another piece of art to your own mini art collection.

Projects vary from abstracts and simple color-mixing exercises to figurative subjects—a flower, a sunset, a busy street scene—and many more. These can be mounted, exhibited, collected in a portfolio, or given away as gifts for friends to cherish. Each project adds skills to your repertoire, leaving you primed to dive into more complex theory and practice.

If you are coming to acrylics for the first time, or are keen to improve your skills and sometimes daunted by the thought of filling a large empty canvas or blank piece of board, this is your ideal guide. These small paintings will free you from creative hang-ups and replace them with an addictive desire to create that next 5-inch square!
