Speed Acrylics Knife-Painting Workshop, Colchester, Sat 30th July 2016
"Speed-painting" just got even speedier and more expressive...! Lois Cordelia leads another in her popular series of "speed-painting" workshops at Tindalls, Colchester, using acrylic paints, with a special emphasis on expressive mark-making, using a palette knife and heavy body acrylics. (Feel free to supplement a brush, though the emphasis will be on knife-painting.) Effortlessly capture the spirit of fur, hair, spines, wispy leaves and whiskers, or create ruggedly textured surfaces and backgrounds that ripple with energy.
Lois encourages you to let go conventional ideas about realistic colour, and instead be expressive and spontaneous, launch into bold, sweeping knife and brushstrokes on a large scale, and communicate more with less.
We will be working loosely based on photographic references (human and animal portraits, landscapes, architecture, etc - please feel free to bring in some of your own!), but the emphasis will be more on freedom of expression than on accurately copying an existing image. This is an ideal workshop for beginners, for those wishing to experiment specifically with palette knife and heavy body acrylics, and for anyone wanting to loosen up their painting style.
