Perfecting your artistic techniques isn't easy, but thankfully some skilled artists are willing to share their knowledge to help you up your game. This includes Luiza Niechoda, who is known for her contemporary pixelated landscape paintings. Niechoda teaches My Modern Met Academy's Acrylic Painting Masterclass. In it, she shows students several tools and techniques that can be applied to any style of art.
The intermediate-level course even includes a mini-lesson on how to stretch your own canvas for those who may be interested in getting their hands dirty. From there, Niechoda shows you how to prep your canvas prior to painting before sharing how you can execute sharp, crisp lines using a few different techniques.
You'll then move into looking at basic color theory before creating a color mixing chart that will become a valuable tool for any future artwork. After sourcing images and working on a preliminary sketch, you'll follow along as Niechoda paints two different abstract landscape paintings. Whether you also are interested in painting landscapes, or simply wish to learn new skills, this course will most definitely add to your artistic toolbox.
So, once you enroll, what supplies will you need to get started? Students receive the full supplies list with the course, but we'll give a quick rundown of some necessary items. First, you'll want two canvases, one with a raw or linen finish and a second with any finish that you'd like. Of course, if you decide to stretch your own canvas, you'll need stretcher bars, a staple gun, linen canvas, a rubber mallet, and glue.
When she paints, Niechoda works with angled and bright brushes and suggests bringing all the shades of blue and green paint you have to the class. You'll also need a piece of paper that can hold acrylic paint for the color mixing chart, as well as an acrylic painting medium and masking tape to get sharp lines.
