Expressive Brushwork w/Mary Sheehan Winn

1day workshop

Saturday, Nov. 16

9:30AM-3:30PM
$130M 

$175NM

Painting "painterly" paintings involves careful and deliberate brushwork, which creates edges or transitions and points of interest in a painting.

Learn to make confident brush strokes. Lay them down and leave them. After you go over your strokes more than twice, you are removing the paint.

Create thicker, thinner, wider, narrower, longer, shorter marks to make your point.

You will learn to vary their direction throughout the painting.

Backgrounds generally require wider, bigger strokes where

smaller areas may need thinner, narrower or shorter strokes.
