Hello, I'm Jacklyn Laflamme. I'm a professional artist with JacklynLaflamme.com. Tips on acrylic painting. You will need a canvas. You will need acrylic paint. You will need paintbrushes. We are going to start off and put some paint on a brush, and first tip is going to be using the brush to really create texture. So, you see how I am just using my brush to create the line and the texture. Now, the nice thing about acrylic paints is that they dry really quickly, so once this dries you can go back in and add more color to it. And add more detail. So, we are just going to fill in this line. I'm going to go to a little bit of a darker green here, and I'm just going to come down underneath. And you see how you can blend the colors together and get a nice, smooth look over here. And over here it's a little bit more, you get a little bit more texture. But, you can also just keep smoothing it out and smoothing it out so that you can get a nice contrast in the bottom with the light colors on the top. I'm just going to create a little bit of an abstract here. Now, I am going to take some blue down here and just start adding a little bit more. Now, you can just go right next to it, and you see you can just get a nice, smooth line here. And really getting some really cool effects in acrylic paints. So, these are basically tips if you wanted, you know, paint a little bit more abstract. And I recommend you just play with the paint and see the different effects that you can create. This is Jacklyn Laflamme. Thank you for watching.
