Acrylic Painting Class Lesson 5 Scraffitto and the Hundertwasser style, work on aluminium foil.

Heather Vail with her attractrive design, first she glued some aluminium foil on stetched canvas.
The family came to class with this already done because if you don't  do it a day ahead, the foil doesn't have time to dry and it can rip.
Ron Vail with his bird and fish.  Very dramatic.  Secondly they all painted their foil with black twice for good coverage.
Together we can achieve more with painiting as a family. 
Primary colours were used in the style of Hundertwasser.
 Bright,  happy primary colurs.
Hundertwasser was reputed to say that he had no use for the straight line.

Laleyna with her  funky cosmic looking creation.
After the design is done you scratch back some of the colours to reveal the aluminium underneath.
Hundertwasser, organic and curvilinear

Julian with his abstract creative design.
You are now finished and you can stand back and admire the bold bright design.

The whole family has work that goes together but shows each of their style.

In my courses no two people come out with the same design because I encourage you to express yourself.
The next Beginners Acrylic Painting class starts on  Monday the 30th of April , 6 to 8pm.
I am taking enrolments now.
 Classes limited to 8 people.

I am also running an advanced acrylic painting class  on Tuesday nights starting 25th April and I have one vacancy.
People work on their own designs and we work towards exhibition pieces.
They use my art books for inspiration. and we have in class critiques which help people grow in a positive and encouraging environment.

I will be featuring some of their work in the next post.

Past students are welcome to return for Beginners Painting Classes 2 where we will be working with plaster of paris, making acrylic skins, doing a coloured self portrait, working with wax, creating a landscape using glazing medium and aboriginal style pointilism work.

Group  enquiries welcome.
Weekend workshops by arrangement.
Join me on facebook.
