Glazing Techniques and Intro to Image Transfer with Liquitex Acrylics
Instructor: Tony Zatzick
Discover how Dutch painters created wonderful depth in their paintings by learning the principles behind glazing. While originally an oil technique, glazing can also be used as an acrylic painting technique. Students will be introduced to the essentials of glazing and use a very contemporary approach with acrylic image transfers. The importance of transparency and opacity will be discussed, as well as how to apply color and the use of mediums to thin colors.
