It’s also suitable and fun for any practiced painter wanting to hone their techniques including good composition, mixing natural colors, painting tool use with precision or subtlety to create realism, distance, and a sense of movement.

Julie Read is a self-taught acrylic painter, learning the basics from Port Townsend artist and teacher Max Grover. Her painting style is narrative realism, often with a humorous and nostalgic bent. She teaches using traditional painting techniques that produce true-to-life images but encourages her students to find their own painterly style with a broad range of assignments and exercises.
