Class Description

Many are not aware that Acrylic paints can also be used to produce a watercolour looking painting. In fact acrylics is water-based and use the very same pigments as watercolours. In this lesson I will demonstrate they you can achieve watercolor quality and watercolor looking paintings with your acrylics. I think some are going to be surprised! Obviously there are some differences and I will point them out and how you can overcome most of them.

In this lesson you will learn:

1. How to blend while wet (cannot when dry)
2. How to thin the acrylic paints
3. The difference between acrylics and watercolours4. How to start the painting.
