In this workshop participants will explore a process led approach to making abstract expressionist landscapes using mixed media on paper. Working on several pieces simultaneously, we will experiment with mark making, collage and layering of paint to create semi- abstract landscapes that evoke a sense of real or imagined places. This workshop is for anyone who wants to introduce some spontaneity into their painting practice. At the end of the workshop participants will have a developed a collection of samples for future reference and several resolved works on paper.
6-8 pieces of A3 sized smooth heavyweight paper (approx. 300gsm), such as Snowdon cartridge or hot-press watercolour paper. Choose something you won’t be intimidated to use.
Sketchbook or extra paper for experiments.
Water soluble pencil or chalk in a dark colour, such as an Inktense block, Artgraf or Wollf’s carbon pencil.
Black acrylic ink
PVA glue or matte medium for collaging paper
Acrylic paint. Good choices are red iron oxide or burnt sienna, cadmium or hansa yellow medium, ultramarine blue, black and titanium white, but feel free to bring what you have. Mixing colours is part of the fun.
