Using acrylic paint and basic brushes participants will create and finish an 8” x 8” stylized silhouette of Adirondack mountains of their choice. Techniques will include mixing colors, basic brush stokes, sizing the image, transfer of lettering, and more. Participants should bring an image of their favorite known Adirondack mountain silhouette (photos, magazine, etc.), painting clothes (apron, one cleaning cloth), and their own basic brushes (1/2” stiff, small detailing, medium round tip) and soft pencils and erasers.
Brushes will be available at the workshop. All other materials will be provided.
