"Still-Life with Strawberries"
In this online course Kellie uses vibrant paints and a loose touch to create her expressive style. This step by step course makes painting in this style achievable for aspiring artists of all skill levels.
Kellie is sponsored by Chroma Atelier Interactive paints and she will explain why these paints are her brand of choice. Kellie will discuss her preferred painting surfaces or "substrates" as well as how to prepare the substrate for painting. She will also discuss using Prismacolor color pencils for adding variety and energy in your artwork. Your tools are an important part of the process, and Kellie will suggest where to splurge and where you can save. Some of this information is bonus material not covered in her live workshops.
Kellie will show you how she prepares her work space, and how she warms up for painting. She will also show you how she sets up every detail of her still-life from lighting techniques to deciding on the composition.
Watch from an "over-hands" perspective as Kellie demonstrates her signature techniques from start to finish, from blank surface to a completed painting.
This course includes two additional bonuses not covered in her live workshops. First, she will demonstrate how to use white to create glazing effects. Then Kellie will demonstrate how to varnish your paintings for a professional finish that makes your artwork even more rich and full of life.
