...a three day workshop in acrylic on Yupo paper, a synthetic plastic watercolor paper. We will learn this exciting surface by learning the different techniques of controlling and not controlling the paint, to build a beautiful, exciting surface. We will use stencils, rollers and markers, along with fluid paint and opaque’s to layer and build intriguing surfaces, as we integrate representational subject matter into our paintings. It’s all in the layers... so let’s get started!
