Explore color and texture as you never have before with acrylic artist Hashim Akib! Hashim is the perfect guide into the world of vibrant acrylics as he leads you on a journey of discovery in his easy-going, relaxed manner.
Hashim focuses on three contrasting subjects - a landscape: "Woodland Light," a portrait: "Hard Life," and an urban-scape: "Rush Hour." Hashim explores the abstract qualities of the landscape with overlaying brushstrokes rather than striving for photographic accuracy, creating interest and drama with light and color.
In the portrait project, Hashim describes the importance of acclimatising to the scene by creating color layers, allowing the color history of your palette to give depth and texture, helping you reinterpret how to mix colors for creating warmth, particularly in the skin tones.
Finally, Hashim's urban-scape project is a great example of how to break a complex scene down into simple, manageable shapes.
Make sure to stay tuned until the end for a special bonus demonstration all about negative painting!
