This book showcases Angela Gaughan’s exquisite works of art, and provides an insight into her distinctive techniques she uses to achieve her amazingly detailed, life-like paintings of animals, people and more.

It is an inspirational guide to painting in acrylics; both for experienced artists who are interested in Angela’s methods, and those wishing to improve their skills. 

Sumptuous colour is at the heart of Angela's vivid, beautiful art work. Her unique techniques combine the advantages of acrylics and oils. In this inspirational book, Angela shares with you a lifetime's worth of experience in art. Learn her unique approach to using acrylics to produce depth and character in your own wildlife artwork, and follow the step-by-step demonstrations as you build up your skills.

Beginning with detailed coverage of the materials, tools and media Angela uses, the reader is led through her stages of working, from using photographic references, through completing a tonal drawing on canvas. They will learn Angela's methods, starting with creating a tonal underpainting with water-soluble pencils, and leading through to using transparent washes and opaque colours to a full painting. The instructional techniques then connect into substantial chapters on colour, composition and finish off with masterwork techniques to help more advanced hobby artists push their artwork further.
