28th Sept 2019 Woodland Textures in Acrylic with David Johnson
Woodland Textures in Acrylic, An Autumn workshop with David ‘DJ’ Johnson
Saturday 28th September 2019
10am – 4pm Pegasus Art Attic Studio
All abilities welcome, including beginners
Join artist David ‘DJ’ Johnson in exploring different ways of applying paint to achieve a variety of textures that you will find in an Autumnal woodland scene!
Don’t worry if you’ve never worked with acrylic before – David will show you the best way to harness this medium. His approach is to guide people step by step, demonstrating each stage of the scene, followed by one to one tuition.
Try different ways of holding your brush to achieve new effects, use your fingers, sponges, pieces of cardboard – all of which achieve suprisingly unusual results. To increase the textural element, you will have a go at adding sand to your paint. All students will be working from the same photograph (provided by DJ). He will help to build your confidence, work on colour mixing, composition in order to return home with a finished painting.
