Acrylics are the most versatile of painting mediums offering the beginner the freedom to make mistakes and correct them! Carole will guide you through simple step-by-step exercises, showing you many different ways to use acrylics – from a watercolour style to using it thickly with a palette knife. We will be painting both landscapes and still life and look at surfaces, brushes and composition as well as using gels and additives…everything, in fact, to kick start your acrylic paintings!
