Illustrates transparent, translucent and opaque painting techniques while retaining the aesthetic that makes watercolor so attractive

Presents easy-to-grasp, thorough instruction on such basics as designing successful compositions, making preliminary sketches and dividing the paper space

Includes a gallery of outstanding finished paintings that prove acrylics can exceed watercolor's limitations

Acrylic painters who love watercolor's effects and watercolorists who want more flexibility need this book!
