Acrylic Painting Lesson

For this video, I’m painting on a Fredrix gallery wrapped canvas. This canvas had too much tooth for fine detail, but I loved the shape (1 1/2″ thick stretcher bars) so I just gessoed it with Liquitex gesso, dried it, then sanded it down with 800grit sandpaper for a smooth finish.

The colors I’m using are Liquitex basics in white, mars black, bright aqua green mixed with a bit of phthalo blue to get my teal color, and som permanent green deep for glazing over portions of the wave.
