Over the next three Thursdays from 5pm to 6pm MDT (10/29, 11/5 and 11/12) we will be working on painting this landscape in acrylic! Although if you prefer to use a different paint medium, feel free, but the majority of this class will be centered around the acrylic painting process and techniques. The above landscape will serve as our inspiration and starting point, however I will discuss a variety of strategies for making your painting individual and unique.
You could work on canvas or watercolor paper and for colors at minimum you will need the 3 primaries (red, blue and yellow) along with some white and black. If you have some other colors such as magenta, green or a variety of blues you can have those on hand as well. It's always helpful to have a variety of different paint brushes, paper towels and a cup (or two) of water.
Session 1 - Set up, sketch landscape and begin block in
Session 2 - Finish block in and begin adding blending/texture/details
Session 3 - Finish adding details and share finished painting
