As a fairly seasoned artist, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Tesia Blackburn’s debut book, “Acrylic Painting with Passion.” I’ve been a fan of her work for years and have heard wonderful things about her art classes but wasn’t entirely sure she’d be able to translate her “passion” in to words. As it happens, she’s completed the feat wonderfully.
Useful and Inspirational

This book is a gem! A major challenge for many artists is overcoming hesitation and intimidation when faced with a blank canvas. The author presents a series of easy yet effective exercises to overcome this, while providing numerous colorful examples to inspire and inform the reader. She also presents a fascinating glimpse into the studio practices of a number of professional artists. Tesia Blackburn’s writing style is engaging, and her sense of humor shines through. All in all, this is a fine book for anyone looking to make art with less fear and more spontaneity.
Fun and practical book that’s rich with knowledge about acrylic
on October 22, 2014
Very useful ideas, how-tos and foundational learning about painting with acrylics and mixed media. Lots of rich content including ideas about limiting and mixing color to where to start. I enjoyed the supportive tone and broad experience that Tesia brought to the content. All the photos and images provided useful ideas that I return to again and again. Would definitely recommend.

Almost knowing her in person (FaceBook friends) I feel that I can pick her brain anytime I want with this book. I am so glad she started with the basics: Rules & Tools. She goes through each chapter step by step, pictures and all. Loved reading it and going back for inspiration. Thanks for writing this book!

Loved this book. It is a series of guided explorations with acrylics. Tesia is all about fun and this book is. Minimal supplies needed just make some time open book,turn on music and enjoy painting with her joyful direction. This is not about how to paint a flower but more about how to paint freely and joyfully and paint beautifully.

Ms. Blackburn is full of exciting ideas. She wants you to try just about anything, to become a free-ranging artist. Lots of fun, and some things turn out quite well.
