Have you ever wondered how to Loosen-Up your painting style? Paint with more Freedom? Be more Spontaneous? Be more Expressive? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then my Bigger, Faster, Fresher, Looser Abstract Painting Workshop is for you! I will teach you how to do each of these realizing there should also be a firm foundation of structure for your paintings using shape, value, color, edges, and center of interest. Here is some of what we’ll cover: • How to loosen up and paint spontaneously with no pre-planning • How to use big brushes and lots of juicy paint • How to paint from your heart, not your head • How to create fresh beautiful color without making “mud” • Art business information • And much more! This workshop is not only about painting abstract compositions, but also about learning to loosen up and paint more freely. All who attend will be able to apply the lessons learned to their own style of painting in their studios. This workshop is non media specific. All who utilize watercolor, acrylic, pastel and oil are welcome.
