In this DVD workshop, David N. Kitler demonstrates his methods for working effectively and creatively with acrylics. You will learn how David works with materials, textures, colors, and much more from David's commentary throughout his demonstration. David N. Kitler guides you through the technical challenges of acrylics so you can focus on your art. Using inexpensive brushes and only a handful of colors, David leads a half-dozen demos on materials, transparency, textures, mixing, and more. Youll master the essential supplies from boards to palettes to pigments. Youll learn to mix any hue using three primaries and how to pick the right white paint for the task at hand. David helps you create smooth gradations, mottled backgrounds, and delicate edges, all using basic tools. Youll explore opaque painting and transparent layering before David combines the two in his squirrel demo. He shares secrets for creating life like textures and helps you get the most from your reference photo.
