In the past, painters used acrylics only to imitate oils or watercolors -- but no more! Versatile and durable, acrylics have become the medium of choice for many artists. With just these ten easy lessons, you too can have all the technique and activity necessary to produce fabulous acrylic paintings. Sort through materials to find what's essential and hone your drawing skills on every project -- each one has outline drawings to use as a guide. Gain hands-on knowledge of mixing color, and lay out a palette at the start. Decide on your subject, use viewfinders to settle on proportions and composition, and paint mini-sketches. Experiment with textures by adding sand or other materials to your paint, or through brush takes and knife marks. Lay down washes; create the illusion of space and form on a fiat surface; vary paint applications for different effects; and paint still lifes, landscapes, figures, and collages. Informative sidebars contain each chapter's aims, and copious full-color illustrations will get you motivated!

Not sure what happened here but this is not the correct description for this book. Obviously it is the description of some computer manual.
