About This Class

In Essential Skills Part Two you will learn how to eliminate muddy artwork. To create crisp & colorful art you need to stop bad habitls and master the art of how to handle your palette and medium(s). The tips you will learn seem simple but I can ensure you it takes discipline to make the necessary changes. I've taught many live workshops and have seen new & experienced artists make these common mistakes.

Note - This is the final series of lessons for Essential Skills. In Essential Skills Part One I shared many techniques for applying mediums to your surface(s). In Part Two you will learn to eliminate bad habits that result in gray, muddy art. If you haven't watched Essential Skills Part One I encourage you to do so.

I've included a PDF with important reminders & demo images from all lessons. This can be found in the Project section of the class.

Moving Forward - Once you have mastered the Essential Skills it's time to explote the wonderful world of painting loose with acrylics & mixed media. I have several classes already here on SkillShare and will post many more. I look forward to sharing my passion and many lessons learned for painting loose.
