Landscapes as Source: Abstract Acrylic Workshop, April 18
In this workshop the landscapes that surround you are the source of your inspiration.
Learn to translate aspects of the figurative landscapes around you that capture your imagination into abstract landscapes on canvas rich with color, textures and marks using acrylic paints and other mediums. I will share and guide you through some of my favorite landscape-inspired creative process that I often use in my studio practice.
You will create abstract studies, explore color, learn how to make various textures, and begin two mixed media abstract paintings that express the way the landscapes make you feel.
Also you will receive an invitation to join a 1-hour Zoom Open Studios the week following the workshop to ask any
follow-up questions, share work progress and connect.
