The step-by-step projects let you practice your skill and stir your imagination — and give you the foundation to create similar projects with your own subjects and surfaces!

  • Practice design and composition principles — mix and use color, balance elements, make changes, and pull your painting together

  • Imitate several kinds of styles — use acrylic paint to mimic the effects of watercolor and oil paints

  • Build your repertoire — explore texture and dimension, work with glass, rocks, bricks, metalwork, and more
