ABOUT THE CLASS
Belinda likes to teach fundamental techniques and skills in her workshops to allow participants to learn how they can use this in their own painting practice on their choice of the subject later on their own. So in this class Belinda will give a demonstration and information on:
- Different types of acrylic paints, acrylic painting mediums and surfaces you can work on with acrylic paint
- You will be given a chance to “play” and feel with these paints and surfaces yourself so you start to get a guage for what you like to work with
- Demonstration of mixing colours, basic colour theories
- Demonstration of working with two different techniques both a impasto (think) type of painting style as well a smooth style in which we will move into the practice of painting a sky using a technique where the paint is mixed on the canvas
- We will also work on multiple experiments to play with wet on wet, & how layers of paint can be used, in the acrylic drying process to give different effects.
- You will also get a printed copy of our Workbook Acrylic Basics to work on when you get home.
You do not need any previous experience with acrylics to participate in this workshop, but you do need to come with an open mind, without judgments and be open to experimenting with different techniques with NO expectations to walk away with a completed artwork necessarily. It is about experimenting and learning so you can apply this technique in your future paintings.
