LOOSEN UP Weekend Workshop at Northshore Artist Guild, Vancouver May 25/26

Develop powerful strategies for injecting expressive energy into your paintings while retaining strong structure and recognizable form. Gain confidence in your painting practise through engaging in various exercises that will flex your painting chops! These include drawing warm-ups, unusual subject matter, colour studies, and playful strategies to break you out of your usual habits. The workshop will include tips on brushwork, composition, edges, texture and avoiding “muddiness”. Although Val will be mostly demonstrating in oil paint, she is very fluent in working with acrylics, therefore oil and acrylic painters are welcome.
