Class Description:
Introducing “True Colors”, a new series of painting courses designed by Kellee Wynne of Kellee Wynne Studios to help any artist learn the foundation of acrylic painting while still having fun. Let’s build confidence while finding your true style in an easy, relaxed setting. By painting in an abstract manner, you can approach the canvas with the confidence of knowing that anything goes when you’re creating loose and free.

“Mini Seascape Paintings” is the second class in the 3 part series that is perfect for artists at any level, from beginner to experienced. Each class is a stand alone class and will have individualized, thorough instructions. Take one class or take all three to dive deeper into your art practice through acrylic painting. In the True Color Series you will learn:

  • Which paints and mediums to use in acrylic painting.
  • How to choose and mix colors.
  • The best ways to start a painting.
  • What makes a good composition.
  • Fun techniques to build layers of paint.
  • How to add texture to make the painting pop.
  • When to finish a painting and make your final mark.
  • Learn how to analyze your own artwork.

We will be painting a set of nine mini paintings in playful, vibrant colors. Students will be guided step by step on how to work on them all at once to build up little seascape scenes with varying styles of a cloudy sky.
