Within her 1.5 hour presentation (at Gordon Harris Art Supplies, in Newmarket, Auckland) Patti covered the extensive Golden Artist Colors range…tips, tricks, examples. What she also threw in was a good helping of acrylic paint theory.
I took art to School Certificate (Year 11) level, and then completed a couple of weekend/short course painting workshops during the ensuing 20 years. I am not formally trained in fine art, and most of what I know I have either read, or achieved by trial and much error.
To hear what I heard from Patti – at no cost to me – I feel like I was given a gift. It was as if someone took me by the hand and said “you need to have a few knowledge gaps filled, let me help you…for nothing (other than trying to build brand loyalty)”. To readers, this might all seem like quite an insignificant thing, but to me, it was a true blessing.
