3. Advanced Oil and Acrylic Painting Techniques

Just a note to start:  A couple of these techniques may look and/or sound the same – such as what you may have learned in your basic 32 day course, but they are immensely different in what they do and achieve for you.   The Creative Knife Technique, for instance, is extremely powerful and rarely taught. 

Similarly, a basic technique such as Blending, which is commonly taught, plays a vastly different role when used in advanced painting, giving you boosted powers at your fingertips to get what you want on canvas.

  • Dagger Stroke
  • Blending
  • Painting Knife
  • Caress Stroke
  • Transparent Glazing
  • Opaque Glazing
  • Creative Knife
  • Scumbling
  • Wiping Off
  • Creative Rag
  • Liner Stroke
  • Scribble Stroke
