Abstracting and Simplifying Your Painting

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 10 am - 3 pm with instructor Sandy Ostrau.

Learn to simplify and abstract your work using techniques for reductive composing and creating rich color harmonies and textures. This workshop will address techniques useful in abstract, figurative or landscape painting and is intended for painters with some experience using oil or acrylic. The focus will be on the process for completing a painting as well as re-working an existing painting in order to magnify the essence of the composition.
