Acrylic Painting Workshop in Italy

Using simple methods, this enriching painting workshop will interrupt the tendency to overthink and will allow artists to break free of their inner critic. We will explore the stunning Assisi landscape in search of people in action and practice gestural sketches while enjoying the scenery. We will also collect photos on our outdoor excursions to use in the studio. Working with a limited, yet expansive color palette of Golden Open Acrylics, we will learn about warm and cool colors, how to mix and use midtones, how to mix and use desaturated colors, how to set up an accurate value scale that leads to success, and how to "block in basic shapes" which will allow students to paint loosely and expressively.
