About This Class

Welcome to Part 2 of Acrylics Painting for Beginners!

In Part 1 you learned about the essential qualities of acrylic paint. You also learned about the important painting techniques and skills needed to paint your first acrylic painting. If you have not completed your first painting in the course please do so before starting Part 2. You will be building on these skills in Part 2.

In Part 2 you will be learning more painting skills through demonstration paintings. This includes:

  1. Color relationships;
  2. Expressive brushwork;
  3. Contemporary painting approaches;

and much more.

There are many demonstrations to inspire your next acrylic painting. I hope that you try them all and enjoy the fun to be gained from acrylics.

As I always tell my students - take your time. If you are a beginner than do not rush your paintings. Rather do one over again to learn from the previous attempt. The first few attempts at one subject will look nothing compared to attempt number 10. A natural progression is part of the learning experience.

Thank you for joining Part 2 of this course.

Happy painting
