JENNIFER SUELLEN RYE BA MA
Exploring the possibilities of introducing elements of abstraction into your painting.
We'll begin with some fundamental concepts for composing abstract Acrylic paintings, followed by a half-hour looking at Acrylic abstract paintings to understand these works better.
We will then spend an hour sketching outside to loosen up and reconnect with the landscape. Bodnant Studio is an ideal location for this, as it boasts breathtaking views up and down the valley. The sketches will serve as the reference point for the subsequent paintings.
We will then begin with an intuitive play on a gesso panel. We will be laying down paint freely and spontaneously to cover the surface and establish a starting point for a more finished composition.
After we've had some fun, we'll begin to incorporate intention into the composition by creating landscape forms and shapes. I'll demonstrate how I make decisions in my paintings and share my thought process with you.
All materials will be provided on the day.
