About This Class

We will be using acrylics to paint an underpainting with the option to paint the final painting with either acrylics or oils.  We will learn about what an underpainting is and why an underpainting is a good option for giving a piece depth and a beautiful quality to your paintings.  I will give a demonstration.  Students will create a painting of their own by painting an underpainting first, then a finished painting over the top, and take and share progress shots of their work.  The class is geared toward people who like painting in either acrylics or oils, all levels welcome.
