OILS OR ACRYLICS

R 450 INCLUDES LUNCH OR R 350 EXCLUDES LUNCH

The workshop will adapt a free-form shape and compose process.  Instead of detail we will focus on shape, colour, form and unity.  Surface texture and what you can do with it will also be dealt with.  Abstract means to take away without diminishing function or effect.  As you know we all tend to overwork our art; rather than address what to keep and what to discard.  Flowers allow you to focus on intent rather than realism, form rather than detail.  It is painting from a distance.   It is the ability to abandon realistic thought and to play, over-exaggerate and then to carefully work it back to familiar forms.
