SHIMMER AND SHINE Workshop with Artist Christine Sauer
This is a TWO DAY workshop, April 7 and April 8, 9:45 AM -4 PM both days.
We'll explore beautiful, luminous and unusual effects using Golden Iridescent (metallics), Interference, and other specialty acrylic paints. These gorgeous paints are rich and versatile and will add another level of sophistication and creativity to your art. From pearly translucence, shimmery faux metallic, gritty sheen, and more, these effects can be used in a variety of styles of artwork. We’ll explore color mixing, abstract and non-objective painting applications, as well as realistic subject matter with a contemporary twist. Working with raised textured surfaces, madewith gels and pastes, will enhance the qualities of these paints. Additionally, I’ll share some of my bold strategies to transform older, less successful paintings using these paints. Bring a small painting, under 11x14” that you would like to transform. If you don’t have one, bring an additional small blank canvas panel or cradled panel for an alternative project. Participants will make small demo paintings and one larger work.
