April 3 - Julie Clemons - Drawing with acrylics over oil pastel abstract painting 

      Julie's landscape paintings are stylized, non-traditional, colorful, and often a bit funky. Her work is an interpretation of the infinite colors and shapes in the landscape of Idaho and the West.
        She will demonstrate how to use oil pastels to create an underpainting and then draw over this with acrylic paint applied with a fine-tipped squeeze bottle. This technique can be used on a vary of substrates including board, canvas, and paper. Julie will explain the entire process, including how to prepare the substrate and apply the pastel, how to fix the pastel so that the acrylic can be applied, and varnish options for the completed piece.
        Look forward to learning a fun and different approach to acrylic and mixed media painting!
