"Oil & Cold Wax - Abstract Painting"
August 14 & 15, 2021
 

This 2-Day Workshop will cover the Oil & Cold Wax painting fundamentals, then we will examine Abstract Art, that by definition is characterized by the reduction of natural appearances into simplified forms; for example, constructing art on the basis of geometric shapes or intuitive gestures, or by the use of color to express emotions. Be prepared to paint looser and more intuitively. On day 2 we will cover constraint in art while creating a painting. But most importantly simplification and how to take a concept to its essence, and or easier to do or understand. Finally, we will consider the power of a limited color palette. There will be plenty of time for action-filled painting and personalized attention.
