Beginner Statement Class, 36" x 48"
All Classes • 1h 30m
There is a big misconception that when new to painting, you need to paint small. This class completely debunks that notion! Using a limited color palette of blues and creams, I'll guide you through the how's and why's of mixing paint, building a composition, rotating multiple paint applications and choosing an accent color (you'll have accent color options to customize your painting to your taste) to create a gorgeous, soft statement painting on a 36" x 48" canvas. The end result will look anything but novice! The class is still challenging enough for seasoned painters, so if you love this painting, don't hesitate to take this-you'll still learn something new.
The supply list can be found in the supply list collection of your subscription library. All supplies are linked to my preferred suppliers, for easy online shopping.
Feel free to use comparable items that you have on hand, or through your preferred art supplier, but do try to stick to the suggested paint brand and color in order to achieve the desired color palette.
