About This Course

Who this course is for:

  • People who want to learn how to paint with acrylic colors

What you’ll learn: 

  • Adding shadows and highlights to acrylic paintings
  • Creating a background color for acrylic paintings
  • Mixing colors
  • Knowing how much water to add


  • Know a little about painting and colors

Acrylic paint has a layer of plastic in it. It can be mixed with water but it’s not at all like watercolor paint. The water is simply a small additive to make the acrylic paint more see-through. The other nice thing about it, is that you can always paint over it once it dries up (and it dries up pretty fast). These are just a few of the many benefits of acrylic paint.

Become more acquainted with acrylic paint techniques as you study the observations the artist has made while analyzing his own work of art. You will see various aspects of mixing paint, putting it on canvas, adding details and background colors, and other things that need to be taken into consideration when beginning on a journey like this.
