Acrylic Painting and the seasons! What an exciting combination! The versatility of the medium gives us the ability to capture the transitory effects of landscape in all four seasons! We’ll follow the cycles of nature and give expression to emotions and feelings while respecting the principles we need to create a work of art. These principles will guide us as a foundation; rhythm, repetition, unity, balance and harmony. We’ll be working in the tradition of landscape painters from the Romantics and Realists on to the Impressionists and Contemporary artists, each with their contribution to art history. The special properties of acrylic make it possible to achieve a vast array of techniques. If you are a beginner it can be confusing how to start – which brushes, what colors which surfaces will you need? This workshop is intended to help anyone who loves to paint, both beginners and more practiced students who want to reinvigorate their painting. The chapters start with materials and tools then follow the seasons as we study the foundations of painting. Remember to enjoy this mysterious and beautiful thing we call creativity!
