We will learn how to use acrylics in a thick impasto style to mimic the qualities of oil paint, incorporating structure gel and palette knife work to add body to the picture surface. We will also look at the use of glazes and varnishes to modify and enhance our work. A basic knowledge of acrylics is desirable.
