Painting Portraits in Acrylics: A Practical Guide to Contemporary Portraiture [9781782215813]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Award-winning artist Hashim Akib's striking portraits are at the heart of this inspirational book. The subject of portraiture is seen by many as the zenith of art, and Hash's eaygoing, unpretentious style puts fantastic results within the reach of hobby artists and aspiring professionals alike.

Assuming nothing and starting from the basics - making it suitable even for the enthusiastic beginner - this book includes six step-by-step projects to follow; along with friendly but in-depth advice on colour palettes; skintone; composition; working from photographs and models; markmaking; lighting; atmosphere and much more.

The book covers many types of portraiture - from the self-portrait to full-length portraits - all presented in Hash's striking, free and contemporary style.
