In this weekend workshop, participants will create textured, complex watermedia backgrounds and then work on turning them into harmonious, successfully finished paintings. The transformation will occur by applying design, value, and negative painting techniques to these uniquely creative backgrounds. The materials used will be gesso and either watercolor or liquid acrylics (your choice). The process will produce uniquely interesting and creative paintings. The subject matter is up to each participant—these methods work well with both representative and abstract imagery. The pace will be fast and dynamic, and you will have fun! You will leave with at least 8 painting starts and 1 or 2 completed paintings. Expect to learn about creative new mixed media methods of painting and to strengthen you compositional skills.


Media: Mixed media.

Skill level: beginner, but some experience with paint is required

Age Range: adults.
