This will be a fun, interesting, laid-back, and easy to understand class. The level of this class is Beginning-Intermediate to Intermediate.
First, you will learn how to use perspective, and you will create a simple sketch with light pencil. You will receive step by step instruction and assistance, as possible, on how to mix all the colors that you will need from the primary colors. You will also receive instruction on color values, the use of composition and light, as well as tips on different brush techniques and how to achieve different effects. You will receive instructions on how to use different texturing mediums such as Clear Gels, Sculpturing Pastes, Textured Mediums, and how to apply them and mix them with regular Acrylic Paints in order to create a 3 dimensional, textured appearance to your painting. We will build textured rock and other natural effects, and create clear water with movement and foam.
