THE POWER OF ACRYLICS

WE REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!!
Tel: 0118 9483155 email: studio@joedaisy.co.uk

 

Acrylic paint is a very special medium with wonderful qualities

But it is important to paint in acrylic paint PROPERLY!

A good acrylic paint, which we use requires no water to add (that makes it watercolour!!). PLEASE DO NOT ADD WATER!!

And you mix colour on the CANVAS NOT on the palette.

This is the special quality of acrylic paint which our exceptional tutors will show you.

Hi there

Just wanted to give some feedback for the Abstract Art Course I attended last weekend.

The weekend course was absolutely fantastic.  It was really comprehensive and really enjoyable.  Heather, the tutor, was very good.  She had great knowledge and talent and shared it with us all in a patient, but enthusiastic manner.  I learnt more in that weekend than I have been able to self teach in over a year.  Thank you.  I would fully recommend this course.

Kind Regards Danny Casey

THE SENSATIONAL BLEND OF OILS

Begin Oil Painting

 

Oil paint is the paint that BLENDS.

No longer smelly and toxic! Our tutors show you the CORRECT PROCESSES for oil paint.

You DO NOT just slap it on!!

You DO mix colour on the palette with oils BUT it is important to create THREE tones of colour.

The Base/Spectrum tone, the lighter tone and the darker tone of the base.

Do you know how to DARKEN a colour? You add the complement of that colour

Glazing and 'tonking'? We can show you everything!

All this and great oil painting from our tutors.

MAKING WATER WORK WITH WATERCOLOUR

Mmmmmmmm Watercolour, that illustrous medium which looks so glorious and fragile and moody and intriguing.

Difficult to master = NOT REALLY = not with our sensational tutors.

You HAVE TO MAKE THE WATER WORK.

Think about 'PAINTING WITH WATER' with some added colour!

Let the water 'DO ITS THING'!

Sit back, relax and let the brush, the water and the pigment do its work

LOVELY!!
