If you're looking to broaden your palette from oils or watercolors, or even have experience in acrylic, you'll gain fresh insight through observing Vadnais' classically inspired process. After an overview of tube vs. fluid colors, brushes and panel preparation, Vadnais launches into the the creation of a landscape, drawing on extensive training and experience as an artist in classical realism. The intimate studio setting allows you to see close-up how Vadnais transfers a drawing, builds a monochromatic underpainting to establish values, then creates both atmospheric effects and rigorously defined details with with glazes and opaque painting methods. gYou'll have a clear view of both palette and brush as Vadnais explains how he uses acrylic colors to achieve depth, luminosity and texture – techniques you can apply to your own practice. As questions arise, Vadnais is available to answer them and to give you feedback on your own work.
