A Word From the Author:
"This book is a collection of colorful projects designed to help you learn to paint with acrylics. The more than 25 step-by-step projects will also give you a wide range of subject matter to enjoy. Some of the projects may look complex, but remember that painting with acrylic is all about painting in layers. Since acrylics dry rapidly, it is easy to keep adding details or to cover up previous applications a little at a time. You’re never ‘stuck’ when you work with acrylic paint; it is a very forgiving medium" — Lee Hammond
Check Out This Excerpt From Acrylic Painting with Lee Hammond:
Once you’ve selected the paint you prefer, you will find that individual colors have their own properties as well.
Some colors will cover better than others, appearing more opaque, while some will be more transparent. With time and practice, you’ll get to know your paints. Play and experiment first by creating some color swatches like the ones on this page. This will give you a better understanding of how each color on your palette behaves.
The swatches on this page show how some colors are opaque and completely cover the canvas, while others are more transparent and seem streaky.Permanence:
Certain colors are more prone to fading over time than others. Most brands will have a permanency rating on the package to let you know what to expect. A color with an "Excellent" rating is a durable color that will hold its original color for a long time. A color rated as "Good" or "Moderate" will have some fading, but not a huge difference over time. A color rated as "Fugitive" will tend to fade significantly. You can see this most often with yellows and certain reds. Try to avoid fugitive colors, but regardless of a colors’ permanence rating, never hang a painting in direct sunlight. Ultraviolet rays in sunlight are the primary cause of fading.
Good-quality paint brands will include some toxic colors. Some of the natural pigments that produce vivid colors are toxic, such as the Cadmium pigments and some blues. Never swallow or inhale these colors. Certain colors should never be spray applied; check the label. If you’re working with children, always find a brand that substitutes synthetic, manufactured pigments for the toxic ones.
