Indulge in artistic exploration as you learn how to transform literal representation of nature’s patterns, birds and landscapes into evocative, gently abstracted paintings! Investigate effective strategies for stylizing and modifying imagery that focus on simplified design possibilities and basic color concepts to empower self-expression and express your unique creativity. In this essential program you will learn tactics for creative interpretation of subject matter and negative painting concepts. Discover how to build with warm and cool light and secrets for sequencing layers to evoke a sense of mystery. Linda’s simplified color and design concepts will provide you with fresh approach to self expression using luminous transparent and opaque acrylics on canvas, claybord and mylar sheets. This stimulating, fun workshop offers demonstrations, prepared notes and individual painting time guided by friendly, helpful advice. You will take home a number of small studies and finished pieces. You will also acquire skills that will make you a more capable, accomplished painter.
