Book Review – Little Ways to Learn Acrylics by Mark Daniel Nelson

50 small painting projects to get you started

This book arrived this morning and I think it is just what I need.  I have been inspired to try out painting with either oils or acrylic for a little while, inspired by my friend Rosie who creates fabulous abstract and imaginative figurative paintings with the medium.

I have been playing around with acrylic paint  before, with little guidance with some quite comical results.  So this book, with its 50 small paintings is right up my alley as the only painting I have done before has been with watercolors  and therefore I am a complete beginner. I have done the first two paintings today, very simple landscapes using  flat colours.  but looking further into the book there is plenty of scope to experiment around a painting finding my own subject to practice the skill.
