Bigger, Faster, Fresher, Looser Abstract Painting Workshops
Have you ever wondered how to Loosen-Up your painting style? Paint Fresher paintings? Be more Spontaneous? Be more Expressive? Paint Bigger paintings? If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then my "Bigger, Faster, Fresher, Looser" Abstract Painting Workshops are for you! I will teach you how to do each of these realizing there should also be a firm foundation of structure for your paintings using shape, value, color, edges and center of interest.
