Learn 3 Art Changing Studio Secrets that Fine Artists and Illustrators Use All the Time

I have used these three secret techniques to produce hundreds of paintings in watercolor, acrylic, and oil. Here they are!

1 - Glazing

2 - Veiling in White and Heightening in White

3 -  Shadow Secret

Why are they secret? 

They are not so much a secret as they are forgotten. Dash and blast painting techniques have taken over the art world and who has time for technique anymore.We do however have time (and sometimes it only takes a few minutes) to apply one or more of these Studio Secrets to a piece of art that does not measure up to our 'seal of quality'

We do however have time (and sometimes it only takes a few minutes) to apply one or more of these Studio Secrets to the following list of artwork:

1- To a piece of art that does not measure up to our 'seal of quality'

2- To enhance and bring brilliance and luminosity to a piece of art we are doing.

3- To bring harmony to a painting that needs color correction.

I am always saddened by the lack of 'punch' in most paintings I see publicly displayed. With just a few of these techniques and a few more minutes and sometimes hours, the work would really sing and say, "Look at me!"

Learn these painting techniques for watercolor, oil or acrylic, and see if you are not encouraged to paint a little longer and delve a little deeper into your artistic development.

No words but THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
This class is helping me understand more advanced techniques for watercolor painting. I am learning to move my art to a more satisfying and professional level. Ron's patience is exemplary and his instructions are kind and immediately useful. He is quick to reply to my questions and to encourage what's going well in my painting. When I finish this project I plan to start another and use these techniques to create more professional looking paintings. I feel that Ron will be here for guidance for more than one class project. We are lucky to have him as a Skillshare instructor.
