Abstract & Beyond 2
Instructor: Brenda Belfield
Medium: Acrylics only
Level: All, with any experience
ABSTRACT PAINTING begins with a recognizable subject: still life, landscapes, florals, etc., and Non-Objective art has no recognizable form. When painting intuitively a painter may begin with a subject and allow it to transform beyond, into a non-objective painting. This class will focus on the process of beginning a painting and exploring options to take it beyond abstraction. Surfaces will be enhanced with textures made with pastels, water-based crayons, charcoal, and collage. Demonstrations of techniques and tools (palette knife, rollers, printing, veiling) will offer new ideas to painters. Class begins with exercises on a large pad of paper and then small and large canvasses.
