About This Class

This is a Demo done outside and it's for everyone.

You can look through your window, or paint from your car, you can even do a little pencil sketch, the point is to get your eyes and your feelings responding to something that is important in your life.

I sketch all the time and have done so since 1980 when I was studying the French Impressionists. Get to the mountains, the forests, the parks, the alleys, the streets, just get out and get going. 

Best advice for me was from Rudy de Reyna, one of my mentors when I was starting out. His advice for Sketching: "Sketch the very first thing you see that remotely interests you. There are no perfect pictures waiting for you somewhere. You make it happen !"

Follow me in this 10-minute Demo and pick up some great  'Painting Tips' especially for thick acrylics.



Here are a few Tips you will get:

1- How to mix your colors on the painting surface and not on your palette.

2- How to use sweet and pure color notes that sing out in your painting.

3- How to get a great outdoor painting with a limited number of colors and time.

4- How to make your mountains soar and stand proud.

5- How to prevent frostbite when painting in very cold weather.
