Beginning February 5, 2019

Change of subject
Rick Wheeler changing his Monday morning class back to Acrylic Painting
A Painterly Approach to Acrylics
This class focuses on what is known as loose brushwork. Realism or representational painting is the style of work, with looser more visible brushstrokes as the technique in rendering a landscape. This technique is less about detail and more about simpler more expressive shapes and color.
