“Misty Mountains” Acrylic workshop RWC (Dec 2020)

December 6 @ 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM


Misty Mountains

Vanishing mountains into the distance of a Winter terrain is one of the most beautiful sights of the year.  Of course the colorful greens of Spring, blue skies of Summer, and the fiery leaves of Autumn are extremely alluring.  However it is equally important to be able to capture the subtlety of those seductive Winter greys.  This full-day acrylic workshop will focus on creating depth and atmosphere in a simple Winter mountain landscape (pictured above). Demo’s will be given throughout the day covering glazinglayering and color-mixing techniques. By using a limited color palette of only three (you heard right – three!) colors we will build up transparent and opaque layers to ultimately capture the cold, receding Misty Mountains.

There will be a 1 hour meal break mid-workshop.

All levels welcome!
  This workshop is a great introduction to acrylic for the beginner.   More advanced artists can fine tune their skills and really push themselves.  The class environment is always open and supportive to whatever skill level you are at.


All you need to bring to class is the canvas?
Everything else is included!  How wonderful is that?!
(Please bring either a 16×20 or 12×24 stretched canvas)
