Beginners Acrylics - Animals in Motion with Lois Cordelia at Old Bank Studios
Contact course provider
About the Course
One day acrylic painting workshop with experienced artist - beginners welcome.
Let go of conventional ideas about realistic colour and obsessive detail, and instead be expressive and spontaneous with colour, launch into bold, sweeping brushstrokes on a large scale, and communicate more with less. You will also have the opportunity to experiment with metallic colours and iridescent mediums, and try your hand at palette knife painting. We will work loosely based on photo references (human portraits, animal portraits, landscapes, etc). The focus will be more on freedom of expression than on achieving an accurate likeness, though Lois will be happy to give advice on both. Ideal workshop for beginners in acrylics and anyone wanting to loosen up their painting style.
