"Transparent Methods for Oils & Acrylics"
July 9, 2021
 

Oil and acrylic paintings can have that transparent, almost watercolor, look through the application of specific techniques and methods in conjunction with the use of a painting medium. In this demo, Alex will demonstrate fast-drying acrylics in order to cover a range of methods to obtain jewel-like, transparent results. Join us and paint along using a medium (gloss or matte medium for acrylics, or for oils, a medium like a linseed oil or Liquin a Winsor Newton product for oils.)

"Painting Flowers in Oils: a Simplified Approach"
July 16, 2021
 

Flowers come in delightful colors, shapes, forms, and sizes. Painting them can be very rewarding and satisfying. Oils lend themselves to flowers that are bright and bold, or delicate and soft. Alex will demonstrate techniques for applying paint and how to create the “look” of delicate petals and leaf shapes to depict several types of flowers. The color mixing and value variations are applicable to all media. Paint along in either oils or acrylics.

"Acrylics: Transparent Methods for Glass and Water"
September 24, 2021
 

Acrylic paint is an opaque medium similar to oils. However, it can also have a transparent, many-layered look through the application of specific methods in conjunction with the use of a painting medium. This paint-along demo will feature how to use the layering process using an acrylic medium to create the illusion of glass and clear water, among other applications. Alex will be using gloss medium to mix with her paints. Any acrylic medium is fine (matte, gloss et al).
