A Line Takes a Walk, Expressionist Abstract Painting in Acrylic with Peter Griffen - Holiday Workshop

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Colour is applied, take a line for a walk, pour on paint, splash, scrape, drip and collage. The surface is agitated relying on emotion and instinct at first.

Many paintings are worked on at the same time moving from one to another as the feelings change and ideas develop. We are always looking for surprising images by sometimes entering chaos and always experiencing challenges.

The use of rich colour interactions will be encouraged, glazing suggested, various surface textures investigated, soft tone paintings and alternately vivid expressionistic imagery will be possible.

Demonstrations will be made as needed and individual help is given. Each participant will find their own way of working producing images that are of their own particular invention.

**Suitable for all levels. **
