Take your mind for a walk and enter the adventurous world of abstract and semi abstract painting.
To start with watercolour washes will be applied and these responded to to maintain sensitive and delicate paintings.
Free form personal approaches will be encouraged and the investigations may take these quiet images into bolder and highly textured works using splashing, dripping, scraping, ripping, glazing, collage, etc.
Demonstrations will be made when needed and personal assistance will be constant.
Expressionistic still life and figure studies will be included to broaden and apply the free painting techniques experienced.
