From Library Journal
Acrylic paints are the chameleons of media. Straight from the tube, acrylics can look like oils; thinned with water, they are used like traditional watercolors. To illustrate her point, editor Wolf wisely chooses seven master artists, each of whom uses a different technique to portray everything from still lifes to outdoor scenes to expressive abstracts. This approach is uniquely appropriate to the medium and makes this work even more useful than Earl and Leah Killeen's The North Light Book of Acrylic Painting Techniques (North Light, 1995).
