Acrylic paint is an extremely versatile medium allowing for numerous creative techniques. The goal of this thesis was to explore these techniques. Research was conducted through the library and internet sources, along with direct observation of acrylic paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Then, I produced a series of seven paintings with each painting incorporating one of the previously researched techniques and styles. The theme of nature was used for each painting to create unity within the series. In order to better demonstrate the techniques and procedures, I filmed myself and the painting process for three of the art works. The literature review, videos, and gallery are presented below.
