About This Class

In this class you will learn various techniques for painting loosely with acrylics, collage and graphite. Included in the tutorials are;

  1. Materials overview - I will cover the type of brushes, painting and collage papers used in the class
  2. Design process - Why design is important and how it will allow you to paint more freely
  3. Final demo - Complete step-by-step demo where a landscape painting is created

You will learn;

  • Various ideas and methods for how to approach painting expressively
  • Why using a fan and liner brush create expressive brushstrokes
  • Happy accidents are always welcome and I rarely freak out about them
  • Using a liner, or signature, brush is a great way to add expressive brushwork
  • Use collage to add layers and expressive qualities
  • Use your values wisely and try to avoid adding darkest darks and lightest lights too soon.
  • The same can be said for color. So, try to avoid hues that are too saturated in the beginning. Save them for the finish.
