About This Class

In this class you will learn a lot about using layers with acrylics and mixed media. Layers are the key to creating intersting artwork by adding depth to your subjects. The lessons will demonstrate the basic idea of using layers and will open you up to how you can easily improve your artwork.

I will give you two examples of working in layers which are described below:

1. Working with mixed media - basically having fun & creating expressively.

2. Dark beginning

These are just two examples of painting in layers - there are many options. My goal with this class is to demonstrate two and hopefully it will open you up to thinking differently about how you approach your artwork.

Excellent class!
I am so glad that I took this class. I have been working on 2 large paintings that I was completely stuck with and did not like my results, and this class has inspired me to take the paintings to the next level and has given me clarity about what I can do next with them. This is an awesome and very worthwhile class!

Watching Robert work is always fascinating. He inspires me to study the mediums and practice techniques, because he is so expert. He always manages to pull a cool picture out of what often appears to be a bit of a mess along the way. Worth watching!
