Painting the Beautiful Bullfight in Black and White

I hope you are ready for a more challenging project! Because in this class we will use only black and white paint, and from just a few simple stick figures we will paint a beautiful rustic style black and white painting of a bullfight, that you will be proud to display. This course comes with a certificate of achievement and FREE pdf version of my book: Make Your Paintings Pop!

Thank you and I'll see you in class!


Teaching style

Unscripted and hands-on, my style of teaching is a "real world" classroom format where I take you through the whole artistic process:  sketching, painting, and even making mistakes, while I narrate my stream of consciousness thoughts in between teaching various useful skills as we paint.  

Supplies you will need: Acrylic black paint, Mars black is good, but any kind of black will do. Titanium white, or just use acrylic white gesso. The brand of acrylic paint can be whichever brand you prefer. I use Liquitex and Blick brands. Brushes: Having a 1" flat brush and a 1/2" brush will be helpful. Along with a cup of water for cleaning and moistening your brushes, and some paper towels for cleaning them now and then. Canvas can be any type you like. I will be using Arches #180 paper, but you can use stretched canvas, cardboard, wood panel, or anything you like to paint on. Optionally, you may also want to mat and frame your painting, and a matting frame can be used to check the contrast of your work periodically as we paint together.
