Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of acrylic painting techniques, proportion, and texture through the creation of an acrylic painting showing a zoomed in image of their previous collage.
Select a final composition for your painting. Sketch out design on final paper. Start painting!
Painting with texture
Have a dry, flat brush that you can use to blend your paint and create smooth transitions. I tend to like lots of texture and like to see brush marks in my own work. Almost anything can be used to add texture to your paint. There are ready-made texture media available, but I have seen items such as egg shell and sand used to add interest to a painting.
One tip is to use an old toothbrush to spatter your image with paint. This can be remarkably effective at suggesting noise and grain.
How can you add texture to your painting? How can you use texture to create emphasis in your work?
