There’s an old saying among artists that “value does all the work, while color gets all the credit.” AcrylicWorks 5 gives value its due, showing how—in the hands of today’s top artists—it brings drama to everyday subjects, conveys emotion and commands the eye.
The 5th competition book in the AcrylicWorks series, this volume delivers another bold and breathtaking show of the best in contemporary acrylic painting, selected from an international call for entries. A rousing blend of instruction and inspiration, these pages feature:
A treat for artists and art lovers alike, AcrylicWorks 5 invites you to study these modern-day masterpieces, analyze them … or simply sit back and wonder at their incredible skill and artistry.
“When I heard viewers say, 'I feel as though I can reach out and touch those apples' … I knew those values had served me well.”
–Kitty Kelly, p79
