The subject of the first lesson in this video is flowers in a glass; in it we’ll be using all eight of our colors. Remembering to “Have Some More Fun” we’ll start with a dark background this time and learn about painting flowers. With tips about painting back to front and how to paint glass- It’s easier than you think! Lastly we discover a trick from the “littlest room in the house”. In the second lesson we go the Irelands Balanchine Castle to a beautiful scene of a tree lined country lane and a flower filled meadow. We also learn a short history lesson about the names of the colors we’re using.
Artist Terry Harrison presents this guide to painting with acrylics, demonstrating how to use them as watercolours, oils and thick impasto. He also shows how to use a household sponge and some masking fluid to achieve simple techniques.
