About the Book
A workbook filled with tools and ideas for artists working in acrylics.
As an artist and workshop instructor,Dianna Shyne developed this 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 is 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. Originally created in 2009, Dianna just updated it in 2017.
