Artists of all skill levels are invited to register for this workshop. Whether you have always wanted to try acrylics, but did not know where to start, or whether you have already been using this versatile medium, but want to further develop your technique, this is the hands-on workshop for you! While working on a wildlife subject of your choice (including the family pet!), David will review drawing and painting basics, while also teaching techniques that are specific to painting in acrylics. You will learn how to recognize the basic shapes that make it easier to draw any subject; how to mix most colours by using a few basic ones; how to achieve smooth gradations; and how to create optical texture by using David’s signature method of applying transparent washes over opaque layers. Classes will have a maximum of 15 participants, allowing David to give each one a significant amount of individual attention, while fostering an environment where participants also learn from each other. Learning will be further facilitated by demonstrations. Techniques may also be applied to oils.
