Dianna Shyne's Acrylic Workshop
A Guide to Painting Impressionism in Acrylics
by Dianna Shyne
As an artist and workshop instructor,Dianna Shyne developed this brief workbook from class handouts that she has given to students over the years. Each page was created in response to different questions or difficulties that commonly cropped up in classes. Her students needed a starting point, both in use of the materials and in how to transform an idea into a finished painting, and as a result this book evolved.
This workbook was designed to be
used in conjunction with one of Dianna's four or five day workshops or ongoing classes, but can also be used alone. It is absolutely packed with information for all aspiring artists.
Multiple award winning artist, Dianna Shyne, has been painting in watercolor, acrylic and oil for almost 30 years.

From luminous dripping washes to impasto palette knife marks and painterly brush strokes, Dianna’s paintings tap into her Russian Impressionist training to evoke the passage of light and deep emotion.
