In this one-night class, you will learn techniques you can utilize to improve your acrylic paintings. The class will cover color mixing with a limited palette, composition, creating focal points, using abstract shapes, and tips and tricks to paint more creative works of art. 

Hyannis s a wonderful place to visit and take scenic boat tours. This painting was composed from a picture of the Hyannis Harbor Light. Christine created a sunset background to evoke emotion in the painting. 

We will paint the sky using yellows and reds to build our sunset andl use Washi tape to preserve the white to the lighthouse. We will use various techniques to break up the long lines of the shore and buildings. We will then use techniques to paint sand and grasses using layers of complimentary colors. Then we will add some waterfowl to the foreground. A few seagulls and Cape Cod rose bushes will make it pop!

Christine will provide several examples on the board and there will be paper setup for practicing your skills.

This is a beyond basics course. Some experience with acrylics is recommended. Basic drawing skills are suggested, but a template for painting will be provided. If you’ve tried a paint night before, this is the next step up!

All materials are included, but we suggest bringing a painting apron or a large shirt to wear.
