A ‘Jam Packed’ Acrylic Techniques Workshop – 12th Nov 2018

I was invited this afternoon, to tutor a group of artists, that meet at St Martins Church Hall in Looe,   Some of the group, had not used Acrylics before and were keen to learn some Basic Techniques.   In the space of 2½ hours, we covered techniques such as Impasto, Wet in Wet, Dry Brush, Scumbling, Splattering and Glazing, as well as creating texture with a Sponge, Scrunched up Kitchen Roll, Palette Knives and Pieces of Card.  All these techniques were used to create sections of a picture.  I explained how you can add different additives to Gesso to provide texture to the surface before painting on.

Below are a few snippets of some of the techniques demonstrated, plus a picture of the group of ladies that attended the workshop.

I believe that they all enjoyed their afternoon and went away with new found skills.
