Shimmering Speed-Acrylics Workshop, Ely, Wed 26th October 2016

September 29, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Lois Cordelia leads this "speed-paintingworkshop, using acrylic paints, with a special emphasis on shimmering, pearlescent, iridescent and metallic ranges, including gold, silver, bronze, copper and iridescent paints.

She encourages you to let go conventional ideas about realistic colour, and instead be expressive and spontaneous, launch into bold, sweeping 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 metallic and iridescent ranges of acrylic paints, and for anyone wanting to loosen up their painting style.
