Acrylic brushes

The Acrylics range of brushes is ideal for making pictures that need to show the brush strokes clearly, the range is large and distinctive.

The Thick Acrylic variants use Impasto to give a stronger impression of depth to the brush strokes. Impasto is explained in more detail in the next chapter, but essentially it means that the brush strokes have a three-dimensional appearance.

The Wet variants blur the cloned image, this applies particularly to the larger brush sizes, but even with smaller brushes it is difficult to retain much detail.

The Dry Brush variant is a very useful brush for cloning as it paints quickly and gives an attractive brush texture.

The Thick Acrylic Flat 30 brush was used to make this clone picture and the flat brush gives strong directional strokes that stand out well.

The picture has a strong illustrative feeling rather than being purely photographic and emphasizes the exuberant impression of this car.

A pressure sensitive stylus is essential for this type picture in order to be able to get the elongated strokes, when the pen is held at an angle the shape of the strokes change.
