I've been working hard in the studio over the past couple of weeks to make new art, but also to have some images to share for a new workshop that I'll be teaching - Luminous Liquid Layers! I am very excited to announce that I'll be teaching this workshop at 310 ART in Asheville, NC next spring.
I have fallen in love with Golden's High Flow Acrylics, and I have been using them extensively in my work over the past couple of years. They are the consistency of ink and are very versatile. I love layering them, and that led to developing this new workshop. I'm hoping to offer it at a variety of venues across the country over the next year, but for now, come to Asheville!
Here's the description for the Asheville workshop:
Luminous Liquid Layers
Grab a journal, some mixed media paper, or even a couple of canvases, and spend the weekend pushing your creativity as you delve into the world of liquid acrylics. Explore a multitude of exciting possibilities as you paint, drip, scrape, splatter, and stamp. Sure, you’ll learn the basics, but you’ll also learn to use a wide range of unconventional tools and materials to create exciting textures and luminous layers. Throw in some of your favorite images and personal ephemera to add mixed media flair to your work, or focus simply on building your painting skill. Either way, you’ll learn to open yourself to a new painting process as you build texture, embrace color, and develop rich layers. See how easy it is to develop dynamic images as you work, and walk away with vivid pages or works ready to go up on the wall.
These are two of the pieces (above and below) that I have been working on using this layering idea. I really like how they're turning out. If you want to learn about using Golden High Flow Acrylic to make dynamic, layered pieces, sign up for the Asheville Workshop here! Can't make it to NC, keep an eye out for more locations.
