Using a variety of acrylic pastes and collage, we will work through a series of stages creating layers & textures. Having constructed an interesting base we will then work in a combination of washes, thicker paint and drawn marks to create a lively atmospheric image, adding more collage as needed and sanding back through paint to create distressed surfaces. A fun day with plenty of demos and step-by-step instruction.
