  • 3 Tips for Painting a Rainy Cityscape

    Acrylic and Cityscape Painting Tips by Mike Barr |

    It’s no surprise that a rainy downtown area begs to be painted. The contrast of headlights and streetlamps, the reflections of sky on pavement and the hurried pace of those trying to avoid getting soaked–Mike Barr’s “Late Rain” exemplifies this and more.


More than 18 of today’s hottest working artists are showcased in the fall issue of Acrylic Artist—dig in for ideas and inspiration that will inform your own work. Cover artist Angus Wilson shares how he creates masterful pieces that have an impromptu air that belies a deliberate approach. Then we take a completely different look at acrylic art with the portraiture work of Danielle Richard. Richard’s realistic portraits showcase her ability to capture light and evoke timeless emotion. Jean Pederson take Liquitex Professional paint markers and spray paint tools to the Test Zone and shares techniques that will prod artists towards experimentation. Plus, you’ll find outstanding examples of abstract art by Denise Athanas– an artist who gives her creative intuition free rein as she begins each painting and then waits to see what emerges. We also explore painting the wet city, seascapes, art that evokes a particular place and season and much more!
