About the Author

Nick Harris first visited Greece in 1967 and has been unable to resist returning regularly ever since. His work is exhibited at the Jill Yakas Gallery in Athens. It is hardly surprising that the gallery he opened, with his partner Jill Mirza, should be named The Alpha Gallery. The rich and vibrant light of Greece and the relaxed nature of its idiosyncratic buildings produces a quality of reflected light and living shadows that nick uses to create strikingly geometrically structured compositions.

Jill Mirza studied painting and printmaking at Camberwell School of Art, the Royal Academy Schools, and Goldsmiths College, London. After teaching art in London for some years, she left to spend more time painting and in 1988, with her partner Nick Harris, opened The Alpha Gallery in Dorset, on the south coast of England. Her work is permanently on show there when not on exhibition, and it has been purchased by private collectors in Britain, the Far East, and the United States.

I ordered this book to teach me how to mix acrylics. This book is very helpful for painters. It provides techniques and color pictures of said techniques.
