Paint Charming Seaside Scenes With Acrylics
By Jacqueline Penney
Seagulls cawing, the meeting of sky and sea, the hypnotic ebb and flow of waves breaking on the shore…it’s no wonder so many artists are drawn to the magic of the sea. In this book, 16 gorgeous acrylic painting projects portray the many moods and faces of the sea—from beautiful sunrises and a romantic walk along the beach, to scenes featuring lobster boats and lighthouses.
You’ll find step-by-step instruction for painting a wide range of seascape elements including waves, skies, sand dunes, reflections, driftwood, grasses, rocks, sailboats, and more, along with techniques for painting pebbly beaches, ocean spray, weather-worn rocks and other realistic textures.
We’ve all been eagerly awaiting the return of Jackie Penney; her first North Light Book, Discover the Joy of Acrylic Painting, was a book ahead of it’s time—loved by pleasure painters and fine artists alike, Jackie’s instruction gave artists a new medium to use to portray their favorite settings. And now, in Paint Charming Seaside Scenes With Acrylics, as you create these breathtaking seashore scenes, you’ll expand your acrylic painting skills ever further, learning valuable lessons along the way—evoking atmosphere, achieving depth, mastering dancing light and shadows, and more.
