LEARN ABSTRACT PAINTING  

SESSION 1 COMPOSITION.

Without composition you do not have a painting!! There are two sorts of paintings 'Decorative Art' and 'Fine Art'.

A 'decorative' painting is not well composed and you will get bored with this type of painting very quickly. 'Fine Art' is a painting that is accurately composed to give you 'Perfect Harmony of Space' and a painting you will enjoy forever and forever!

We also give you 'THE SECRET FORMULA' = which gives you the ESSENTIAL starting point' to create any abstract!

5-8 'Fine Art' drawings should be submitted this month.

VIDEO included

Composition in Abstractions is everything!

SESSION 2 UNDERSTANDING CONCEPTS AND EMOTIONAL RESPONSE

A 'concept' is the idea behind the painting. It's no good just 'slapping paint' on canvas or paper. A GREAT abstract painting needs authenticity and credibility - every painting must have a great idea or concept behind the creation.

Even in 'Abstract Expressionism' you are geting 'in touch' with your emotions!

EMOTIONAL RESPONSE is what you want and NEED from your viewers! A great painting should immediately give you an emotion - even if you hate it or say ' A 6 year old could paint that' - that's great - you've got an emotional response from your viewer!! If someone just walks past your painting with NO feeling or comment. YOU'VE FAILED!!

We get you to understand how to get emotional response (without sensationalism!!) i.e mostly nudity!!

5 plans and 2 paintings this month

The Concept? 'Too Much Chocolate Makes Me Sick'

SESSION 3 CREATING AN ABSTRACT BASED ON 'LINE'

You need to understand 'Line' and how 'Line' works.

Weight of line, proportion of line, interaction of line, direction of line, line within line etc etc!!

Don't look at an object as 'an object' - understand how LINE creates that object. Don't think 'that's a tree' - think that tree is made up of 2 parallel verticals and curved line above, small curved lines interacting with one another!

8 Line Drawings and 1 painting this month

VIDEO included


Understand Line

SESSION 4 CREATING AN ABSTRACT BASED ON 'PHOTOS'

Bring in an external element to manipulate your photographs (Adobe Photoshop or similar) - or do it by hand.

Change colour, change texture, move line around.

Exciting sessions to inspire and wonder at!! You can't fail!!
