Paint this little winter scene in acrylic paints step by step! A great course for a beginner as we will be going step by step, with plenty of instruction along the way.
Great for the more advanced student, or the student moving from another medium like oils, pastels or watercolor as well. You will see close up how to handle the acrylic paint, tips and techniques for making the most of this great medium!
I'll be covering important concepts like composition, values, color mixing, contrast and more! All topics that apply to all your future painting projects as well.
In this course you will find:
We will be using a limited palette with this painting - meaning you only need to purchases four tubes of paint! This makes it more economical, as well as making your color mixing easier!
This course is completed at your own rate, in the time you have available.
The videos are downloadable so you can have them available wherever you are, no need for an internet connection once you download them.
There is no end date to your course, it will always be available for you to return to.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
See you in class!
As a full time acrylic artist and teacher living in Portland, Oregon. I am inspired by the amazing natural and man made beauty around me. Painting is my way of stopping all the busy madness of life for a moment. I slow down and study what is around me, the colors and shapes, the beauty that we pass every day but stop seeing because it is familiar. With each painting I try to tell a story, to share all the sensations of the day. Sounds, smells, and emotions. The paintings remind me to live each day with an open heart and an open mind. To slow down and enjoy life!
I paint outdoors "en pein air" as well as indoors in my studio. I will often spend a day out painting, taking lots of photos, and then come back to the studio to develop my painting further. My process involves many layers of acrylic paint on canvas. This creates depth, texture and interest throughout the canvas. I often become happily immersed in the process for many hours at a time.
I also love to pass on what I've learned about painting. I teach locally in Portland, as well as here online. I host a free online Art Community website as well. You are most welcome to join me and the other members to share your art and ideas with painters from around the world!
