Terry Harrison presents a refreshingly simple guide that is packed with excellent, easy-to-follow demonstrations illustrating how to create stunning paintings. Acrylics are easy to master and extremely versatile. Paint can be applied thick like oils, or in washes like watercolour. Also, techniques can be mixed to create unusual and different effects. Using a range of brushes, Terry explores all these different techniques showing how to capture atmosphere, texture and detail. He paints a selection of beautiful landscapes, seascapes and buildings with ease, showing how to apply colour to produce stunning pictures of atmospheric skies, mist covered rivers, vibrant fields of flowers, rustic buildings, calm estuaries and more. With many hot tips and a wealth of practical advice, Terry presents an inspiring sequence of step-by-step demonstrations which aim to build up skills and encourage the artist to create their own original paintings.

Terry Harrison became interested in art early on, attending Art School at the age of sixteen. His studies led to a career in graphics, then he became an illustrator, developing his own painting style and perfecting his techniques during evenings and weekends. Demand grew for his paintings and he soon gave up his 'day job' to paint full time. Now he is kept constantly busy with a full schedule of exhibitions, private commissions, demonstrations and painting holidays. His fine art prints are sold in shops and galleries everywhere and he has recently opened a successful art gallery where he displays and sells his paintings. Terry is an energetic and prolific painter and his regular rebookings for demonstrations reflect an enthusiastic response to his educational and entertaining style.
