Painting with Free Expression (in watercolor and acrylic)
9:30 am – 3:30 pm • April 12, 13, 14 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
An Intensive 3 Day Workshop • $295
Paint with released energy and expressive freedom. If you hunger to paint with exuberant energy, freedom and ease of expression – this workshop is for you. In this course you will learn how to plan – then get out of your own way. Paint with ‘new mind’ and flow. Experience shape-based painting – based upon simple compositions that provide a map so clear that they allow risk-taking and exploration. By-pass previously limiting ideas. Tap into the intuitive core. Let the painting lead. Soar.
What we’ll cover:
Managing values (shades of light and dark). Establishing a focal point. Creating push-points and removing barriers to eye path. Integrating the subject with background elements. Putting color temperature and color notes to work for you. Using tools and methods which increase energy and impact. Maybe most important of all – dissolving attitudes and habits which stifle the inspired expression you know you have inside you.
Bring photo reference. You’ll learn what to accentuate, what to ignore in the reference image.
Each day starts with a painting demonstration. Then I work with each student in turn to make sure that breakthroughs are happening.
