"Layers of Color in Acrylic"    William Hernandez
In this demo, participants will learn how to loosen up and apply paint in a gestural, painterly manner using acrylic paint on canvas. Using different layers of colors, paint and brush strokes in a spontaneous way. William will show how he delves into imagery with a sense of boldness and spontaneity and to explore the emotional color response, rather than realistic color. If you feel that you are concentrating too much on small details at the expense of a bolder, more dramatic outcome, this step-by-step demo will help you to learn what to paint as William takes color to new unexpected places by working with various colors and departing from a quick sketch.

The demo begins with a short explanation of his own process, methods, and a step-by-step painting demonstration.
