November 16, 2019
Saturday, November 16 11:00AM – 12:30PM
Saturday, November 16 2:00 – 3:30PM
Demo attendee’s will be able to walk away with some practical techniques to use in their next painting. With 30 years of experience in painting with acrylics, Skai will share and demonstrate the methods she uses in creating abstract works. Skai will discuss conceptualization and preliminary sketching processes and then demonstrate different techniques. These will include glazing to create depth, brush rolling to create 2D textures, wet and dry techniques, and everything in between! She will also focus on the big question – how do I decide when it’s finished? (Please note: If you are looking for a demo on working with different acrylic mediums, this is not that demo)
