We all love that complex, mysterious look of layering and depth, but how do you achieve it? The trick is building up those layers gradually, and obscuring previous layers selectively. Sometimes your finished piece betrays nothing of its original layer.
Why put that first layer down if you are only going to cover over it? The answer is that the first layer is a starting point from which you build subsequent layers, and ultimately end up with a finished piece of art. All the layers are necessary to the process, even if you can’t see some of them. In this workshop I will show you many of the techniques I use to create layers and textures that result in rich atmosphere and depth. You will learn how to use your paints and mediums effectively, and you will gain the freedom and spontaneity of a layered approach.
