With over 50 mediums available to alter your colours and extend your surface options, this workshop explores the incredible versatility of modern acrylic painting. 

Acrylic paint is a complete system: once you’ve chosen your colour, you can alter viscosity from thin to thick, and short to long; you can alter surface sheen, drying times, and adhesion to a wide range of substrates. We’ll work on more unusual surfaces than gesso, using pastes to create grounds that are hard, soft, absorbent, non-absorbent, rough and smooth.

This workshop will map an easy-to-negotiate route through the amazing array of mediums, showing how each affects colour, and matches medium with technique, from pours to impasto..
