Service Description

Fluid Acrylics are designed to marry the strength of acrylic with flow and transparency of watercolour. Crisp textures and deeply luminous effects can be created by multiple glazes, flowing washes of wet paint revisited time and again, and tone built up from limpid pales to the deepest shadows. For those familiar with watercolour to those just starting out in paint. Run by award winning landscape watercolorist David Forster RSW, the course will be presented online by a combination of written description, online demonstration via Zoom and email feedback to explore the excitement of landscape painting in this fascinating medium. The equipment used is much the same as you might use with conventional watercolour. However, the medium is tough on brushes, so it’s not worth using the very best sable, unless you have deep enough pockets to replace them often. The pigments, though they have a similar range to watercolour, have unusual names. They come in small plastic bottles, starting at 30ml, which should be enough for the course. They are not available in all art shops, though can be ordered online, which the shop should happily do. Otherwise, Greyfriars Art on Dundas Street, Edinburgh, keep a full range. Materials List - Paints: Manufacturer: Golden Name of paint: Fluid Acrylic Size: 30ml Colours as follows: Primary yellow, cadmium red (hue), quinacridone magenta, ultramarine blue, cobalt blue, pthalo blue (green shade), pthalo green (Blue shade), dioxazine purple, burnt sienna, titanium white. - Paper: Good quality rough watercolour paper, around A3 size, or a standard sheet cut into 4. - Brushes: Round watercolour/soft acrylic brushes.
