This vibrant workshop explores abstraction with multiple layers and multiple media techniques. Oil, cold wax, pigment sticks and collage converse on a variety of surfaces, emphasizing unity of design, texture and color. We work with a combination of both dry & wet media, including soft pastels, watercolor, oil paint, pigment sticks, charcoal, graphite and collage. Acrylic media can serve as a base underpainting. All imagery applicable. Appropriate for continuing painters.
