Techniques, Texture and Composition in painting workshop with Lynne Cunningham

"North Rim Aspens", acrylic on paper

  "Experiment in Acrylic Paints, and learn to compose better paintings", 
March 2nd and March 9th.
Davis, California
This is a fun class for experimentation in acrylic! We'll be painting on gessoed watercolor paper while learning this flexible and spontaneous painting medium--experience how exciting the potential is for your paintings. Along with technique, we explore design and composition in paintings through discussion, definition, and in-class exercises.

The full range of water-based acrylics will be demonstrated, using it thick like oil or in watercolorlike washes and glazes. Strenghen your paintings with composition; learn painterly effects of atmosphere, texture, drama, spontaneity and the key to acrylics: blending edges. Technique is emphasized, not acrylic mediums or additives.

One requirement: you must know how to mix color and/or the color wheel. Open to interested artists, ages 18+. Best for painters with some experience.
