Class Description: Create beautiful abstract and semi-abstract landscape paintings in a style that is both popular and relatively easy to learn. We will use Golden acrylics, as well as some materials borrowed from faux finishing. Think plaster and leaf. You’ll work loosely from your own photos, exploring the way color, tone and composition work together to create a compelling piece.
