The Creative Edge by Mary Todd Beam.

Acrylics Unleashed  by Glyn Macey – some interesting mixed media projects described step-by-step. She uses paper in compositions containing architecture very effectively.

Acrylic Revolution and Acrylic Innovation by Nancy Reyner (Innovation includes a dvd). Here is her website She really embodies what is possible with all things acrylic.

The Painting Workbook by Alena Hennessy. Her website is

Learn to Paint in Acrylics: With 50 Small Paintings by Mark Nelson is great if you want to move to more abstract painting. Also has great systematic training in mixing colors.
