Learn about the various projects and techniques you’ll cover in class as you meet your instructor, Canadian artist and acrylic consultant Rhéni Tauchid.
Direct Painting (43:50)
Dive into an introduction of direct painting techniques as Tauchid walks you through the steps to create a beautiful still life. Overcome any hesitation about familiarizing (or re-familiarizing) yourself with acrylics as you loosely lay in your objects and background, adding mass, roundness, highlights and depth as you go.
Indirect Painting, Part One (27:19)
Discover the joys of indirect painting techniques with Tauchid’s expert tips along the way. Work with washes to build up layers of gorgeous color in your underpainting, revealing lush undertones and complex color relationships as you go.
Indirect Painting, Part Two (35:10)
Taking the flower underpainting you created in Lesson 3, you’ll move on to adding glaze layers with the use of new mediums. You’ll learn how to choose between opaque, transparent and semi-opaque glazes to obtain the hues and effects that you desire. Tauchid also illustrates ways to determine how your mediums will change when they’re dry, as well as how to add a new drybrush layer on top of your glazes.
Impasto & Acrylic, Part One (26:30)
Create dramatic, varied textures as you indulge your creative side with the impasto technique. Using high-viscosity paints and liquid mediums, you’ll lay in the sky and ground of an alluring abstract landscape. Tauchid shows you how to work with unusual surfaces, create a wide variety of hues and bring your art up off the page (or board) with chunky textures.
Mixed Media With Bling (39:56)
Bring multiple textures and aesthetics together as you use stencils, paint, charcoal, polymer medium and more. You’ll love working with dimension and texture in new ways as you celebrate the endless creative possibilities of this unique, eye-popping style.
