Are you confused by the title of this workshop? Not anymore!
You will be painting with acrylics, but using glazes of transparent colour, so that the result looks like it could be a watercolour painting.
We will start off with drawing our subject, so some drawing skills will be essential.
I will be teaching you how to lay down glazes, mingling colours to create luminous layers, and establishing lights and darks.
Transparent layers do not mean weak colours! You can still achieve strong, vibrant paintings with this technique.
All materials will be provided.
Class size will deliberately be kept small, to allow lots of individual attention, so do book your attendance early. Max 8 persons
