He has been a finalist in the prestigious Plein Air Magazine of America’s annual plein air painting competition in 2020 and 2021, winning the best acrylic painting award in 2022.
The course will take place in studio and outdoors. Acrylic paints are an ideal medium to paint outside and especially for beginner artists to gain confidence. Steve will show how to handle acrylic paints, the equipment needed to paint outside or at home.
Steve will show tips on composition and the flexibility of acrylics to change colours and alter perspective. Students should finish the course confident in the medium and with the knowledge of how to improve their painting. And most importantly, students should finish the course having had fun and be able to enjoy the art of acrylic painting and bringing home finished work.
