Welcome to our first group acrylic painting project! Our goal for this project is to paint just one object (a form) with a simple background. I am selecting an apple to use as my object. This is a project that I am going to chunk into steps and post the content here, on our club homepage so that you can start this project at any time. I will also be available to answer any questions you have or help you with the process of acrylic painting along the way. You can get support by leaving comments on posts or through email, which is underneath my profile on this page. By the end of our lessons you will understand and feel comfortable with the acrylic painting process. Below are some guides to help you get started! I am including the reference image of an apple that I will be using for this project from Unsplash, which is a royalty-free photo website. If I don't take my own reference photos, I always make sure I am using a royalty-free source to avoid any copyright issues. You may select the same image (download here), or choose a single object (form) of your choice. Stay tuned for the next part of this project lesson!
