Take advantage of the fast-drying nature of acrylic to create translucent and luminous paintings. In this class we will start with simple techniques using just a few layers and eventually working up to more complex layer techniques that require dozens of layers. These techniques are especially effective for watercolorists transitioning to acrylic.
Sequence of colors in transparent layering
We’ll create paintings in landscape, still life, and figurative paintings so you can see how these techniques can be applied to different subject matters.
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 techniques and observation skills.
