Abstract paintings are the imagination with intelligence. One might see scrambled lines and tangled shapes in the abstract painting, but it needs the special power of vision to understand an abstract painting. As an artist, you must understand this while going from beginner level to advanced level.
This class is designed to support the intermediate artist who has been painting (in any venue) for some time, and is looking to investigate abstract art and incorporate these techniques into their body of work.
In the first two sessions students will focus on the art of observing the natural forms and colors of a spring bouquet. Hiral will then guide you through the process of turning this into a painting worthy of hanging in your home.
In the next two sessions students will be working on Figure Abstract.
You will learn expressive gestural drawing and painting techniques for the modern painter. Color and Design Compositions will be explained and explored. Using reference photos from magazines be prepared to paint looser, bolder, freer, and more intuitively. Time for exercises, demos, and personalized attention. Drawing skills are not a prerequisite.
