The Landscape in Abstraction (One Day Workshop)


There’s no feeling quite like throwing a big bold brush stroke right across your canvas. This workshop will explore highly abstract landscape painting with a focus on intuitive mark, color, layering and texture. Together, we will transform simple reference imagery into rich, energetic, abstract paintings. The first half of the workshop will be spent creating a small series of mini abstracts, the latter half will be spent working on a larger, more involved painting. We will use non-traditional tools for paint application, take risks, and visit the greatest question of all: “Is my painting finished?”
