Thursday 7th October, 10am – 4pm, £85 per person
Learn to free up your painting style by exploring exciting abstract painting techniques through a series of exploratory studies and exercises on paper. This will help you to simplify your work, whilst improving your understanding of mark-making, layering, tone and composition. You can use the workshop as a chance to purely experiment and/or work towards creating an abstract painting using acrylics, pastel and collage.
A day to explore abstract concepts and ideas, loosen up your painting style and 'have a go' at painting in an abstract style. We will be painting with a limited palette of acrylics and mixed-media on paper. You’ll gain a better understanding of abstract concepts and develop a more confident approach. We will be creating lots of studies on paper to help you to work freely and explore new ideas. Best suited for more confident painters or beginners with enthusiasm who want to explore abstract ideas; the fast workers may wish to produce a more finished painting in the afternoon, but the studies provide everyone with a wealth of ideas for future paintings. It will be an exciting and challenging day with a small group of artists.
