In this acrylic/oil painting course, will offer several options for how to embark on a painting and see it through to completion, including grid, grisaille, and blocking in shapes within the composition. You will learn to appreciate the use and value of preliminary monochromatic watercolour-like simplified sketches (but with acrylics) of the painting you want to do, for the purpose of finding the shapes to keep and losing the less important or extraneous elements in the composition. These methods are starting points for any paintings, not just for beginners and intermediates, but advanced artists, as well. We ask that you bring your own carefully selected images of the subject matter you have a passion for painting.
Expect to paint 2 to 3 paintings during the course.
