IN THE CURRENT ISSUEAAsm15_160

More than 20 of today’s hottest working artists are showcased in the summer issue of Acrylic Artist—dig in for ideas and inspiration that will inform your own work. Cover artist Hugh Greer shares how his drawing and compositional skills combine to create inviting work that collectors love. Jean Pederson walks you through a step-by-step portrait demo full of mark-making techniques that translate to creating the illusion of texture. Tesia Blackburn’s creativity column explains why working in series is good for your art (and your wallet). Plus, you’ll find outstanding examples of photorealistic paintings from Michael Riddet, insights from Filomena Booth on creating abstracts that delight (and sell!), and tips from Elaine Twiss on painting glass.

Demo of the Week

  • Floral Still Life | Demonstration in Oil
