Title: Mixing pastels and acrylics
Post by: Juan Carlos on October 06, 2016, 04:56:27 PM
Hi all,

Lately, I've been reading about pastel paintings involving acrylics or viceversa. The outcome, as far as one can observed from the finished jobs, is astonichingly impressive and detailed. Would it be possible to plan in a near future, a lesson to try this interesting mix? For instance, I've seen working this mixing on paper, cover with a thin layer of gesso to start so the paper do not swallow the paint and then one build its composition afterwards. Very interesting. :smart:

Cheers

Will look into it, Juan Carlos. Unfortunately will only be next year's agenda. All our lessons are planned well in advance.
