Be Free! Acrylic painting workshop for beginners

Create texture and interest with just paint, in your art journal, paper or canvas!

In this free online workshop, I will show you easy techniques to create a whimsical and colourful piece with texture and highlights using a simple bird shape.

I have purposefully created this workshop using acrylic paints ONLY so you can start with minimal supplies but if you have more, you can embellish your artwork further!
Now follow me along while I paint and show you how relaxing fun this is!

This is a full length (from start to finish), step-by-step tutorial of approx. 40 mins.

Even if you have never painted before, I promise you will be able to create (and re-create) the style of artwork you see here with just a few simple steps!

Happy painting!


Suggested supplies:

– Art paper for acrylics, stretched canvas, canvas board or art journal
– Acrylic paints in a few contrasting colours of your choice (I used pink, orange, lime green, light turquoise), some black and white.
Optional but recommended: acrylic paint in gold and iridescent orange :)

Vidya B: I love your art! I recently took this class from you. I was very afraid of acrylic paints. I see myself using a lot of acrylic after i did this online class. Your art speaks to me. I still can’t master the art of knowing your colors like you do but you are an inspiration!
