BLU SMITH WORKSHOP OCTOBER 2, 3 & 4, 2018
THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL - WAITLIST IS AVAILABLE
LANGUAGE OF ABSTRATION
This workshop will focus on developing a visual abstract language and creating a framework to build exciting and expressive abstract landscapes and non-representational abstract works. Colour, composition, line work, light and texture will all be explored with experimentation and proven techniques. A special emphasis will be given to developing “your” unique approach. You will enjoy new and exciting avenues to developing abstract paintings or incorporating these techniques into your own style of work.
