This class is your ultimate painting and mixed media class. Not only will you learn some new ways to push your paint around, you will also learn how to use tools to create texture, depth, line, highlights and shadow. Learn how to use palette knives, skewers and specialty brushes such as liners, flats and rounds. Become the master of depth and add contrast to your paintings by adding highlights and building shadows. Shadows are built up in layers and add wonderful 3-D effects. Glazing and using reverse techniques to bring light back to a painting will be shared. Squeegees and specialty tools will be made in class. We will experiment with some found tools, learn how to use viscosity to move paint and work with matte and gloss sheens. Blending without getting mud is the key here. Many of these methods are not taught in workshops. You may discover them on your own, but save yourself a lot of time and jump start your next painting. You will learn both implied and applied textures and of course there will be a transfer. Whether you are a realistic painter or an abstract painter, this class will teach you ways to use tools, layer glaze colors, blend colors and add light and darks for added depth in your painting.
