Live Lessons: Urban Landscape with Acrylics
About This Lesson Series...
In this lesson series, we take an indirect approach to painting with acrylics. We begin by developing a black and white painting using only grays. Then, once the fully developed underpainting is in place, we begin applying translucent layers of glaze to pull out color. Lastly, we apply opaque applications to finish the image.
Lesson 1 (1:08:37)
In lesson one, we use a transfer to capture the contour lines on the painting surface and begin with black and white applications.
Lesson 2 (1:05:20)
In lesson two, we begin at the top of the picture plane, developing a complete underpainting.
Lesson 3 (1:16:26)
In lesson three, we continue working our way down, patiently rendering each detail.
Lesson 4 (1:12:13)
In lesson four, we continue working on the underpainting.
Lesson 5 (1:12:13)
In lesson five, the underpainting continues.
Lesson 6 (1:12:13)
In lesson six, we have worked our way down to the foreground and continue the underpainting here.
Lesson 7 (1:12:13)
In lesson seven, we complete the underpainting and we are now ready for glazes.
Lesson 8 (1:12:13)
In lesson eight, we begin the process of patiently layering glazes of color over the underpainting.
Lesson 9 (1:09:08)
In lesson nine, we continue the process of patiently layering glazes of color over the underpainting.
Lesson 10 (1:09:10)
In lesson ten, we'll add the finishing touches with opaque applications to complete the painting.
