Abstraction from Nature

In this painting intensive, students will create a series of abstract paintings from their own visual notes, inspired by the North Shore landscape and personal narratives. Daily warm up exercises focus on exploring visual language with emphasis on interpreting color, elements, energy and sense of place, within the painted canvas. Donna will demonstrate painting techniques using traditional and water-based oil paint, palette knife, and brushes. New directions and approaches will be encouraged through looking at works in progress, group discussions, and one-to-one review. Open to artists working in all paint media.
