This book provides an insight into the distinctive techniques Angela Gaughan uses to achieve her amazingly detailed, life-like wildlife paintings; and showcases her other exquisite works of art, including people, flowers and more, to support her teaching. 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.

Her unique way of working combines the advantages of acrylics and oils, and her innovative techniques likewise combine the classical and the modern. Angela has won numerous awards for her artwork, including both the prestigious David Shepherd Award and Simon Combes Award from The Wildlife Art Society International Annual Exhibition.

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.
