Acrylic Painting

Paint along with me! Watch my video demonstration of painting a pair of California Finches in acrylic paint and paint along in real time. The supplies you will need:

  • Canvas or some kind of surface to paint on (cardboard would work in a pinch)
  • Brushes
  • Palette knife (a plastic knife or spoon would work)
  • Palette paper or wax paper (or waxy paper plate)
  • Paint: white, black, burnt umber (dark brown), yellow ochre (kind of yellowy tan), primary yellow, primary or cadmium red, crimson red, and ultramarine blue.
