Bold Acrylic Painting
Acrylic Painting Workshop
February 21-23, 2019
9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
In my workshops, I will be sharing with you my style and technique of painting with vivid, loose brushstrokes. I will teach you how to keep your paintings looking fresh, vibrant and spontaneous, with emphasis on strong values.
In this 3-day workshop, we will be painting 2 (two) landscapes and 1 (one) floral. The way I like to teach in my workshops is by starting a painting and then letting the students “catch up”, with plenty of individual instruction. I feel like this helps the students not have that “lost” feeling after watching an instructor complete a 2-hour demo and say “ok, now it’s your turn”. I will teach you how I change ordinary scenes into BOLD, full of energy with fresh, clean expressive brushstrokes, not being overworked. I will share with you how I mix my colors, to get in and out, keeping your paintings looking spontaneous. You can usually complete a painting during each daily session.
Students find that a friendly critique at the end of each session is very helpful.
