A complete course in Acrylic Painting by Canadian Artist Brian Simons based on his highly successful Acrylic Painting Workshops. Available in a wire-bound, full colour workbook and 2 ebook versions
I AM CONVINCIED THAT ANYONE CAN PAINT! YES ANYONE! IF YOU HAVE TALENT, NO TALENT, KNOWLEDGE,NO KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE,NO EXPERIENCE, THEN THIS IS THE COURSE FOR YOU. THE ARTIST'S JOB IS TO GET OUT OF THE WAY AND ALLOW IT TO HAPPEN, LITERALLY TO SURPRISE HIMSELF. THIS PAINTING BOOK IS DESIGNED TO BYPASS MUCH OF THE ROMANCE, NONSENSE, AND ACADEMIA THAT SURROUNDS ART. IT IS FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO SIMPLY WISH TO PAINT AND HAVE WONDERFUL RESULTS. IF THE STEPS TAKEN IN THIS COURSE ARE DONE IN SEQUENCE, COMPLETELY AND HONESTY, THE RESULTS WILL BE THERE. THIS ACRYLIC PAINTING COURSE HAS EVOLVED FROM 10 YEARS OF TEACHING PEOPLE HOW TO PAINT FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE AND REPRESENTS THE HEART OF MY 2-DAY WORKSHOPS.
NO PREVIOUS DRAWING OR PAINTING EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!
The book is available in 3 formats on the artists website.
"To do this course, you are NOT asked to create, invent, imagine, conjure up or fabricate anything. You are simply asked to DO the course step by step, as honestly and as faithfully as you can without skipping or combining steps or adding anything to the instructions for each. Preliminary sketches, measuring, and drawing are not asked of you. If you are an experienced painter, you ARE asked to suspend all that you know and have learned , and just DO the course without editing, questioning or culling out what you don't like. Results are dependent upon doing the simple steps in sequence and NOTHING ELSE!!!
