Building an abstract painting with calculated abandon. Composition, Color, Texture, Layers, Glazing, Mark Making, Finishing Touches and Staring from a distance.... it’s all part of the process.
This class starts with a demo of how I start a series of abstracts. We’ll work on 3 paintings simultaneously- adding texture medium and materials with layers of paint to create some beautiful pieces. I’m also going to show you how I create my signature sides.
  Kit fee of $20 payable to instuctor at beginning of class includes:

Includes a Texture Material and Collage pack, handout, use of texture paste, stencils, spray paints
