Painting with Acrylics – Part 2: Due to the popularity of the March class Alice is offering another class.
Alice plans to re-create this image of the moon with a graduated blue acrylic background on the day. However, Alice says that those attending can use whatever colour they like – it will still work. The important thing is to have one colour that can be blended from very dark to light as you work down the canvas. Details of brushes that Alice and paint colours that Alice uses will be sent along with the confirmation email.
She will discuss fundamental elements required to creating an economical but presentable finished piece, from canvas selection through the painting process to final framing options. The demonstration may include a series of videos showing the different stages of creation from blank canvas to finished piece, with several breaks for questions.
While Alice doesn’t necessarily recommend painting along whilst watching the demo due to the need for some stages to dry before adding more, there is no reason why viewers shouldn’t do so if they particularly wish to.
What you will need to bring to the class:
- Acrylic paints
- Standard stretched canvas Or A thick piece of cardboard painted with a layer of white acrylic paint (must be prepared before the class) Or Acrylic textured paper if you have this.
- Pencil/ pen
- Pallet or dish
- Water in a jar
- Cloth/kitchen roll to wipe the brushes
Alice suggests using a big brush (she uses a 2inch decorators brush – as you know). Then a medium sized brush for the moon would be useful. Alice will be using titanium white for the basis of the moon with Paynes grey for the shadows, although any blue/grey blend would work. Finally, some type of narrow brush for the grasses at the base.

While Alice does not necessarily recommend painting along whilst watching the demo due to the need for some stages to dry before adding more, she has said that there is no reason why you shouldn’t do so if you particularly wish to.
The cost of a place is £6.50 and can be booked via Eventbrite.
