Achieve mastery in your painting materials! Learn how to use your paints to create any effect. In this workshop David will share all the secrets of the Old Masters that will teach you how to use the paints to create brilliant, luminous and vibrant color effects.
In this workshop you will learn the lost principles of brilliant, luminous, color effects followed by the greatest painters for 5
centuries, from Van Eyck to Van Gogh. Almost everything you have been taught about how to put your paintings together is surprisingly different from how these master artists constructed their work. Moreover, with today’s superior paints and mediums, including the newer acrylics, we are able to create effects that would be the envy of all those famous artists.
Although these principles can be applied to oil paints, in this workshop the focus will be on learning the specific properties of acrylics and how you can use them to achieve fantastic results. Emphasis will be on mastering the materials and skills to help you be a better painter. You will learn to master the medium and effectively apply glazes, veils, and impasto layers of paint. Painting demos will also be featured.
This workshop is designed for artists with some painting experience in oils, acrylics, or even watercolors. Acrylic paints are relatively new and how to use them effectively is still a challenge for many artists. Techniques that are successful when using oil paints or watercolors do not often yield good results when applied to acrylic paints. This is because the physical and chemical properties of the synthetic acrylic paints are unique.
Come prepared to take notes, ask questions, and to paint.
