Playing with Paints Acrylics (or Love Acrylics, if you're in the UK) will be out in just a few weeks and I am still just BURSTING with excitement. This is hands down the biggest and longest project I've ever worked on. Truly, a dream come true. I started working on this book last summer and wrapped it up in the fall. It is kind of surreal to see it all come together. I talked more about the process here, when I surprisingly found out that it was already available for preorder.
Speaking of, have you pre-ordered your copy of Playing With Paints yet? Let me know if you have. Once they are all mailed out and in stores I plan on doing a freebie and/or a giveaway of some sorts for those who have supported this dream of mine! It truly means so much and I wish I could personally think everyone who does!
Playing with paints is 160 pages long. Broken down into 5 chapters with a mix of plays - prompts and projects.
The first chapter covers the basics and helps you get into the swing of painting, and familar with the materials.
In chapter 2 we're ARTYing hard for 15 minutes at a time. This chapter is full of ideas for you to do when you want to create and paint but don't have alot of time to do so.
Let's be honest, the whole book to packed with color (you won't catch me doing too many greyscale paintings). Chapter 3 focuses on colors and inspires you with different and bolds ways to use it painting.
In chapter for we're talkin' bout, learnin' bout and using texture in various ways. Incorporating texture into your painting technique will add more dimension to your final piece. Texture can be intimidating, but it's super fun wants you get comfortable using it.
One of my favorite things about acrylic paint is that it sticks to soo many surfaces. In chapter 5 I am taking you off the canvas and showing you different things and surfaces you can paint on with acrylic paint.
I am so excited for this book to be released, so thankful for the opportunity and even more thankful for everyone who has already supported me, ordering pre-sale and sending me sweet congrats messages. It truly means a lot to me. T H A N K Y O U!!!!
