I work in structured acrylics, mostly with contemporary floral paintings. I took Jacqueline Sullivan's class to learn about texturing and layering for backgrounds in my paintings. I thoroughly enjoyed this class. She is an excellent teacher. She communicates well and is very prepared. She explains the basic application of her techniques and then clearly demonstrates them. I have started to use some of her techniques (layering tissue paper and using molding paste) in my painting. Happy with the results.would be interested. In more classes from her.

In Acrylics: Textures, Layers, and Metallics, Jacqueline Sullivan gives great instruction on how to use the items in the titles to make a stunning abstract acrylic painting. She doesn't just demonstrate. She explains the how's and why's of what she's doing. After watching the video and taking detailed notes, I feel confident that I'll produce something I can be proud of. Thank you, Jacqueline.
