acrylicworks 3 book by North Light booksThis edition of AcrylicWorks focuses on the theme of texture! The broad theme allows for an amazing variety of styles and approaches. Explore how each individual artist takes to capturing their three-dimensional world onto a two dimensional surface. Each translation is unique and inspiring. From shocking hyper-realism to harmonious abstractions, and everything in between, the visual interest of each artist is expressed beautifully and calls your attention into seeing the beauty within any part of our world. See the world as they see it and allow yourself to fall into their paintings as you try to understand both their technique as well as their conceptual focus. Reading each statement certainly gives each work a new air of significance and character

I have an exciting hands on activity as I will have all the supplies for you to try your hand at doodling on pebbles. I have lots and lots of them, they are heavy so I will be happy if you can make a bunch and take them home!
