Do you want to paint but don't know exactly where to start? This is the class for you!
Do you want to paint but don't know exactly where to start? This is the class for you! In this class, I'll teach you everything you need to know about acrylic painting to get started. Acrylic is a great medium because it is very easy to learn and use. I cover a LOT of information in this class, but I have it divided into 6 categories: Your Workspace: I'll show you my workspace and the tools I use to make it the perfect place to paint. Spoiler alert: you don't need a fancy studio to paint, the kitchen table works great! Color mixing: I teach you how to mix colors and obtain a beautiful range of colors using the 3 primaries plus black and white. Brushes – I show you all my favorite brushes and the different brands they make, as well as palette/paint knives! Texture (Acrylic Mediums) – I teach you how to use acrylic mediums to create a really nice texture in your paintings and also how to create the desired finish on your piece. Dimension: I teach you how to create dimension when painting an object to prevent it from looking flat. Depth of Field: I teach you that you must achieve depth of field when painting a landscape using scale and color. And much more! By the end of this class, you will have all the skills you need to start painting! Be sure to check out my class How to Find Your Own Style as an Artist too! Sign up for my email list and be the first to know about new art classes! IMPORTANT: The paintings you create from my class examples are for learning/educational purposes only. Those paintings or those heavily inspired by my class example (or my other work) cannot be sold or reproduced in any way. All my work is copyrighted and that is a violation of copyright. Stick to painting only from examples from my class (not other work on my website) or work from your own inspiration photos.
