Glazing with Transparent pigments in Acrylic
Workshop by Sandy Kay
This is a workshop in a technique I developed over the past several years.
We’ll be glazing in multiple layers in a primary palette I call the
Southwestern Triad (quinacridone nickle azo gold, guinacridone
magenta, pthalo blue) or the Traditional Triad (Cadmium yellow,
Cadmium red, Ultramarine blue). Students will learn to create all the
secondary, tertiary, etc., colors for their paintings from these three. Color
charts for each of the Triads will be created by the students to use in the
workshop and later on in their studios.
This technique can be used with many styles from realistic to abstract,
which will be discussed in depth during the workshop, using examples from
my collection and other artists’ work. Students will also learn to create a
range of colors that are luminous and transparent by layering directly on
their paintings rather than mixing on the palette.
This technique results in a dynamic, shifting, “alive” painting. Light reflects
off of the different layers at different times of the day depending on the
ambiant light. There are many applications for this technique, and lots of
technical information shared throughout the week.
Materials:
2 wood cradle panels or canvasses: 12 x 12 to 16 x 20
Golden Gloss Medium
Palette knives
Brushes-Bring what you have. 1/2” and 1” flat, #6, #8 round for example. I’ll have
some available for you to try with different techniques
Sketchbook and pencil
Paints:
Bring all the paints you have already. You will need a triad of the primary
colours, red, blue, yellow and black and white.
This is a class in technique, any triad will work. If you don’t have any paint,
refer to first paragraph above.
Course Description:
This is a class in a technique I developed over the past several years. We’ll be glazing
in multiple layers, creating colours by layering rather than mixing on the
palette...creating clean clear colours rather than muddy. I’ll be doing my demo of a Tree
pattern, seen below. However, this technique can be used with many styles from
realistic to abstract, which will be discussed in depth during the workshop, using
examples from my collections. Learn to create colors that are luminous and transparent
by layering rather than mixing on the palette.
