Acrylic Painting Lesson

This one was painted on a Fredrix Nature Core mixed media 18×24″ canvas board. I used Liquitex basics paint. To mix the teal I used Pthalo blue, phthalo green, and white.

Copyright Info

I am always happy to have you copy my work for your own practice. Be aware of what reference photo I used, sometimes (as in this case for the raven) you will need to purchase the photo from the photographer to use even for practice. You can use another free photo from somewhere like Pixabay to use instead. As a general rule, you can not copy my work and make prints/sell that work. I retain copyright of the work I complete.

If you follow one of my lessons, you are more than welcome to post your work on social media to share what you’ve done, as long as you include in your post that you followed one of my lessons.

You can always use my techniques in your own designs and reference photos!
