ACRYLICS


 

This common style of art was introduced around the 1900’s in Europe. At first, it was closely related to photography art and was used by famous artists such as Andy Warhol. Acrylics are one of the fastest drying paints, and are water-soluble. Different tips given in painting with Acrylics include hold the brush perpendicular to the line you are making, twist or turn the brush as you paint, and apply different amounts of pressure as you go on. Having different size brushes may also increase the amount of variation you can create. Below, you can see some of these techniques within the paintings.
