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.

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
