From Complexity to Harmony: Creating Dynamic Paintings with Mixed Watermedia


Instructor - Pam Haunschild. Cost $75
Students can expect to have fun creating textured, layered, complex backgrounds and then turning them into coherent paintings (choosing either abstract or representational). We will start by creating unique backgrounds with a variety of texturing materials and gesso on paper. The focus will then be to work with those backgrounds to make them into coherent paintings, using either watercolors or liquid acrylics and two different painting techniques; negative space painting and value capture painting.
Some painting experience will be helpful. A materials list for this class will be on view at Art by the Sea Gallery & Studio.
