About This Class

In this class you will learn expressive still life painting techniques using acrylics and charcoal. The idea behind the class is to teach you how to blend conventional and unconventional painting methods to ultimately create loose simple still life artwork.

You don't always need elaborate compositions if you understand how to make your style the main focus. By mastering basics such as layers, brushwork and expressive drawing you can begin to create some fun simple still life paintings.

Love his classes! I learn a lot every time.
Another great class from Robert. Wow! I love the message that there will be more rejects than great pieces, and we shouldn't be afraid to fail. I'm still struggling with that inner critic but I keep watching Robert paint, listening to his enthusiastic encouragement and hoping the day comes when the messages really hits home and I let myself go.
