89: Depicting Canadian Landscapes, Cottage Country, and Streetcars Using Acrylics with Kenneth Kirsch

Mike reflects on some recent watercolor pieces and also talks about his new experience with acrylic. Kenneth Kirsch joins Mike to share his journey from being a creative kid to graphic design and now a successful landscape artist. Ken talks about his tools, his process, and the stories along the way, like meeting the Rolling Stones, that have contributed to the artist he is today. His homework may have left you feeling limited, but it will give you more power.
