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.
