My friend and teacher, Penny, has just produced a new book about using textures in acrylic and watercolour painting. Over 60 different techniques are illustrated with details of how each is achieved and the materials used.....and some of the materials used are not what you would think of using in a painting. Although you can buy special texture pastes etc, you can also a wide range of household materials and things from the recycle bin. I have uploaded some examples from the book, two using acrylics and two using watercolours. The book can be obtained directly from Penny (email@example.com) and from the Studio Art Shop in Poole.
