Investigations in Acrylic with Peter Griffen
Working en plein air in an expressionist manner, abstract and not-so-abstract, participants will be encouraged to work with the feeling of unlimited freedom. Freedom to explore the medium, freedom to use vivid colour and collage, and freedom to paint and draw in an inventive way as a personal and unique response to the environment. Each participant will be encouraged to work on more than one painting at once, moving from one to the other as the feeling goes or as is practical.
In the studio participants will be able to continue or rework paintings started in the field. Demonstrations will be given to the group and suggestions made on an individual basis. Acrylic paint is highly recommended but participants may use any medium of their choosing. (demonstrations will be in acrylic on paper and canvas)
Participants may choose to work from photos or their sketches. This can be done in the studio on tables and/or on easels. Participants may work on canvas or paper and will be encouraged to work on many paintings at once.
This course is also being taught alongside Peters wife Denise Lithgow who is teaching felt and jewellery.
