Intuitive abstract painting
with Gina Belford Art
10am - 1pm
This workshop will give you practical sessions on how to create intuitive abstract paintings in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
We will focus on creating texture and mark making whilst finding out which colours you are drawn to. You will use brushes and palette knives with acrylic paint, and you will try using paint directly from the tube as well as paint mixed with water. You will have 4/6 small paintings on paper and a small canvas to take home with you. These techniques are the ones I use to create my own paintings and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
I’ll give you the support you need to create something you’ll be proud to take home and we’ll make time for a refreshment break and natter too.
Suitable for all, no experience needed.
All materials are included
Please bring an apron and wear old clothes in case of any splashes
