This workshop will take the step by step considerations from prepping to printing and then painting with acrylic paints on the digital print. Materials needed and what the options are in acrylic paints. You will learn how to choose the “right” color for maximum effect and learning color mixing basics.
Note that the emphasis of this course is not on watercolors but on acrylic paints. That being said I will also cover “glazing” which could be used on a digital watercolor painting and also “fluids” which can be mixed with water to create a watercolor finish.
Finishing the canvas is very important so a variety of methods for sealing or varnishing (or not to varnish) the canvas will be explored.
WARM UP: A few warm up exercises using real paint and materials is highly recommended before painting on your first canvas. There will be a materials list on what to buy to do these lessons. I highly recommend they are done on watercolor paper and NOT canvas. A sample pack of papers can be purchased from Red River Paper and it will include papers I recommend for the warm up lessons. The Warm Up lessons will be part of the videos and workshop as I feel it is so important for everyone to “feel” paint before they start working on their artwork.
