I learned how to paint with acrylics with the help of one my prefered teachers: David K. Kitler.
A positive, happy and informal teacher.
Today you can get easily in touch and relate with people without having ever met them in real. And yet, you consider these persons like good friends and teachers.
The same goes with writers...
Here some explanatory notes::
David N. Kitler guides you through the technical challenges of acrylics so you can focus on your art. Using inexpensive brushes and only a handful of colors, David leads a half-dozen demos on materials, transparency, textures, mixing, and more. Youll master the essential supplies from boards to palettes to pigments. Youll learn to mix any hue using three primaries and how to pick the right white paint for the task at hand. David helps you create smooth gradations, mottled backgrounds, and delicate edges, all using basic tools.
Youll explore opaque painting and transparent layering before David combines the two in his squirrel demo. He shares secrets for creating life like textures and helps you get the most from your reference photo.
