ABSTRACT WATER-BASED PAINT

Article text
Seed heads / botanical subjects / trees

Wednesdays 10.15am - 1.15pm 3 hrs with a break.

This course is suitable for those with some experience with paint and who have an interest in semi-abstract or abstract colourful imagery. We’ll be working with experimental loose mainly liquid mixed media using watercolour / acrylic inks / Indian ink together, to produce images inspired by seed heads / botanical / landscape / tree forms.

Techniques / media such as Gesso grounds, wash off gouache, granulation medium, plant material, (not just printing with skeleton leaves!) fabric
fragments, clingfilm, ink and bleach and layering will be used and imagery will be further developed with opaque negative space work.
