Lesson 2 with Dianna Shyne of Acrylic University.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again then quit. I really wanted to master this lesson. I am not really thrilled with any of these four attempt of painting a red pepper. However, I am not going to consider this a failure, but look at it as a positive learning experience.

Painting with heavy body acrylic paint is a much different experience than painting with watercolor paint. Acrylic painting is much messier! The paints dry fast. To keep the paints from drying out, I am going to use Masterson Premier Pallet which has a machine washable sponge to keep the paint from drying out. We shall see if this truly does keep the paint from drying out.

One of my art goals for 2022 is to continue with the online art classes with Acrylic University. Last year I only attended the first 4 lessons of 52 lessons with Jed Dorsey. No worries as the classes are available to me forever.

Soon to Be Guacamole is the first of 52 lessons with Dianna Shyne through Acrylic University. The introductory lessons with Dianna were very helpful. I ordered supplies that I needed.

This was painted on a wooden board. I prepped a bunch of 6″ x 6″ boards with Golden GAC 100. The next day I painted some of the boards with black gesso, some with gray gesso, and some with white gesso.
