Better Painting is What It’s All About
Painting better landscapes is right at the top of the list of goals for many acrylic painters, including pro Brian LaSaga. In this issue LaSaga shares an easy-to-follow, step-by-step painting demo on how to realistically capture snow and you’ll learn how to recreate color and texture. Plus, the exercise applies to capturing other natural textures as well which will help you paint better.
Portrait painting is another popular pursuit among us, and Matt Cauley’s take on the portrait is refreshing and edgy. We tongue-in-cheek called the feature on Cauley’s work “The New Selfie,” but it’s a stretch. These portraits are not “selfies” at all, but, well, you get the connection since a portrait captures one person. The feature explores the rising trend in portraits that depict folks like us, and it explores the history of portraiture that frequently featured aristocracy posed in their mansions or with their thoroughbreds. The feature is insightful and entertaining, and it will give you fresh perspective on the portrait.
Just like in every other issue, this issue introduces you to working artists by taking an in-depth look at their paintings, styles, techniques and tools. If you have ever wanted to start painting with acrylic, have been using the medium for awhile but need some insight and advice, or are ready to add a new medium to your painting repertoire, this issue is for you.
