North Carolina has beautiful beaches, and walking in a sunset with bright colors is an inspiration.

This painting class consist of 3 parts:

  1. Learning to draw with a square grid Technic.
  2. Under-painting with acrylics.
  3. Finishing the painting with oils or acrylics.

Square Grid Drawing Technic:

Start by drawing in the canvas with a pencil using the Square Grid Drawing Technic. Start by dividing your sketch or photo in proportional squares, then you divide your canvas in with the same Technic in proportional squares. It doesn’t matter how big is your canvas or if it is a mural, the proportions will be perfect.

When using the Square Grid Drawing Technic you defined:

  1. Composition
  2. Proportions
  3. Light and shade

Under-painting with acrylics:

Use your acrylics with lots of water because they flow better, impregnating your canvas, don’t leave spots without paint. Acrylics are very good for under-painting because they dry faster. They create a worm color that once you finish your final painting with oils or acrylics in the top, they look brighter.

Finishing the painting with oils or acrylics:
Start with the clouds, continue with the ocean, the beach and finally the people.
