Cynthia Rosen will lead this online 'paint-along' workshop focused on how to paint rocks. Participants will have a chance to learn about compositionally altering the image to suit your needs. The medium is your choice! Cynthia will be painting with acrylics using the palette knife and paintbrush for the demo. 

Recommended Supplies:

  • Canvas, panel or heavy watercolor paper (if using water-based medium) - suggested sizes: 11x14, 12x16, you can go square if you want, 16x20 optional
  • Suggested colors for oils, acrylics, gouache: titanium white, prussian blue or thalo blue, purple dioxizine, cobalt blue or ultramarine, alizarin permanent, cadmium red medium, cad orange, lemon yellow or cad yellow light
  • *If using acrylics: if your brand of white is not very opaque, Cynthia suggests having some gesso on hand for your purest whites.
