Do you want to explore the potential of paint and hone your unique vision? In each class we will focus on different ways of approaching painting from life, leaving plenty of room for subjectivity. Seeing objects as abstract masses, developing composition and negative space and mixing colors all helps to achieve depth, mood, contrast, texture and layering colors. Small quick studies will start each class so that students have a chance to consider how they want their vision to appear on canvas before developing a painting to completion. Paying attention to the things that intrigue you most is the best way to manifest your unique vision. Acrylic paint will be the medium and use of a palette knife encouraged in at least one class.
