Acrylic Painting Techniques: Sue shares her painting experience with you in this written DIY painting tutorial. This is an excellent exercise that will also strengthen your blending skills, as it describes blending techniques for acrylics and can also be used to reinforce the concepts of value and form.
Sue describes how to paint with Extender medium which extends the drying time for acrylics.
The written lesson also explains how the use of color temperature adds three dimension and depth to this vegetable painting. The background has a textured appearance applied with crinkled plastic wrap. The scrolls are done with a stencil using the Dome Blender brush.
