Half the battle of achieving precise, realistic results in oil and acrylic painting comes down to one's ability to accurately render surfaces and textures-a challenging feat for even the most experienced artists. Although many art instruction books focus on learning to paint specific subjects, many fall short when it comes to offering instruction on techniques that help one capture textures adequately. 101 Textures in Oil & Acrylicfeatures step-by-step instructions for mastering a variety of the most common surfaces, including sand, water, metals, foliage, wood, bark, fabrics, stone, grass, and many more. Each page contains two similar or related textures that readers will be able to re-create using the easy-to-follow steps. General color recommendations for each texture will offer a helpful "get started quick" guide, while an index enables easy reference. A short gallery at the end of the book illustrates how various textures represent in finished works of art.
