How to Build Abstract in Acrylics (Note Date Change)
In this workshop we will be building an Abstract using lines, shapes and colour!  Colours will be blended, scraped and dripped to create beautiful subtle paintings. The workshop will start with warm up exercises – watercolour paper with Gesso can be used for this.  Our goal is to finish 2 paintings, a small canvas approximately 10”x10” which will be finished with a pour of Clear Tar Gel. For your second painting feel free to use any canvas size, fluid acrylics, heavy body acrylics, gels and pastes. We will look at various abstract compositions and colour choices to make this painting your own!
