Series 1: Strokes, Prep and Base coating

On this creative journey, Liz takes you through easy to follow instructions where you will cover correct preparation of unfinished wood and proper use of your acrylic painting brushes as you master stroke work, the back bone of base coating. Great for beginners to decorative painting, but important information for those of you who have been painting without the aid of an instructor. Also an excellent refresher for those of you with experience.

This class is the first offering in a series of 3 Workshops:
Series 1: Strokes, Prep and Base coating
Series 2: Side Loading for Shading and Hilites
Series 3: Embellishing with Line Work and Borders
This is a great series for those of you embarking on your decorative painting journey, or for those of you who want to brush up on your stroke techniques. If you’ve been going it on your own, here are the techniques you’ve craved. Liz presents the basic information on using acrylics in a clear step by step, easy to follow manner.

  • Waxed Palette: I like the palette by Canson because it stays flat and has just the right amount of repellency for brush prep. The Grey Matters palette by Jack Richeson & co. is also very nice.
