acrylic demos



I have a student who enjoys working in acrylic and I try to do demonstrations for her as often as I can. We have been looking at how colors relate/reflect... warm, cool... light sources... It is so interesting if you take the time to do your value drawings, take color notes and study the image before you paint. We have been painting from life in the studio.

Thanks for the comments. I feel like I am really improving because of all the review I get from the classes I teach. Funny how me, the instructor, has those "A Ha" moments just as often as my students.
