From translucent colors of a grape to the reflective surface of metal to the texture of a lemon peel, have you ever wondered how the Old Masters were able to create food and still life paintings that are so lifelike? The short answer is they used different layering techniques using transparent and opaque paint. The Old Masters used oil painting but to our delight, their multi-layered techniques are actually even more efficient in acrylic because acrylic dries much faster than oil. You can create dozens of layers in acrylic in a few hours, which is faster than in oil.
Learn these layering and glazing techniques developed by Wayne over the last three decades, which resembles the look of the 17the century Baroque Old Master oil paintings using acrylic paint.
In this workshop you will learn:
This class will include painting demos, student work feedback sessions, slideshow presentations, and eye training exercises. These combinations of activities are designed to help refine your acrylic painting technique, observation skill, and understanding of Old Masters’ paintings.
