Un­cover the se­crets to keep your acrylics wet and use­able!

International Artist - - Call For Entries - Barry Mccann’s De­cem­ber/jan­uary Artists’ News­let­ter

Paint­ing a rep­re­sen­ta­tional sub­ject us­ing the medium of acrylics is gen­er­ally avoided be­cause of how fast the paints dry. This fast-dry­ing medium usu­ally doesn’t al­low enough time to mix and ap­ply the cor­rect tone on the can­vas and it seems near im­pos­si­ble to blend ar­eas or make them ap­pear to those soft edges that are so typ­i­cally seen in an oil paint­ing. I would like to share with you how I get around these ob­sta­cles in my DVD My Acrylic Method. My DVD not only shows you the ways I keep my paint and mixes wet and use­able through­out the paint­ing process, but how I choose a sub­ject, de­sign the paint­ing, my equip­ment, draw­ing and colour mix­ing tips. It is an “over my shoul­der” look at how I cre­ate a gallery piece over sev­eral days in the stu­dio from con­cept through to pre­sen­ta­tion.

“This DVD set is not just a demon­stra­tion; it is more like a work­shop you can do in your own en­vi­ron­ment at a time that suits you.”
