Faux WATERCOLOR with Acrylics:
A 2-week Workshop
Try your hand at fluid washes and watercolor techniques using only acrylic paints and mediums!
Drips, spatters, staining, and washes...they draw us in and transport us to our favorite beaches, rivers, and lakes. I love these techniques because it allows for the colors to have such depth and luminosity with little effort.
Learn how to create quick and easy abstracts on canvas using special effects that are typically used in watercolors. Students will create three 18x24 paintings on canvas.
No experience with watercolor/fluid techniques necessary but students should have some experience with painting in acrylics.
