Art Is...Acrylic Painting: Getting-Start

( 24:36 )

Artist Stephen Quiller demonstrates how students can easily get started with acrylic painting. Basic materials are shown with pigments, a palette using freezer paper, and brushes and their care. A simple demonstration shows how to use acrylic like watercolor with thin washes and then in a translucent and opaque style. Demonstrations of a landscape, cityscape, and a still life further explore these properties. The DVDs Color and Composition are also available and complement this program.
