Beyond Alla Prima – The Journey to Creative & Imaginative Painting
This workshop is designed to strengthen your voice by clarifying and developing your thoughts, ideas, interests, or feelings and guide them into powerful statements. We begin the process of composing more inventively and developing the idea visually and abstractly. Line, color, shape, texture, value, and balance are explored as the creative imagery develops. Spontaneity, intuition, and discovery are part of the process. Surprises and expanding possibilities become part of the image as you proceed to add layers of acrylic paint to the canvas.
