Paper Trio Painting Class
All Classes • 1h 8m
I love a gallery wall of abstract art. I love it not only for its ability to make an awkward space look complete, but the way it can make small works seem larger than life. In this class, I'll teach how to create your own abstract paintings for a gallery wall: a set of three small paper pieces, 5" x 5" (with a pre-cut mat that measures 11" x 14", and just needs to be placed in a ready-made frame. Voila!). I'll guide you through tearing your paper, building a cohesive composition, and layer a variety of mixed media to create an energetic yet sophisticated look.
The supply list can be found in the supply list collection of your subscription library. All supplies are linked to my preferred suppliers, for easy online shopping.
Feel free to use comparable items that you have on hand, or through your preferred art supplier, but do try to stick to the suggested paint brand and color in order to achieve the desired color palette.

Dramatic Landscape, 40" x 30"
Drama! Drama! Drama! I love a good landscape painting, though as an abstract artist I have a tendency to want to see a traditional subject in an abstract style. If you deconstructed the elements we love about a landscape painting, would it still translate? Could we make it something more? This cl...
