DECORATING AND VARNISHING:
Here are examples of abstract poppies created by my amazing students:
WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR?
Mixed Media Abstract with Poppies is for everyone who loves poppies and who wants to create bold and expressive abstract floral artwork! For artists looking to try their hand at abstraction and are open to a non-linear and open exploration of paint and mixed media. Anyone who wants to learn more about composition and balance, color and texture, pattern and contrast!
My paintings is the creation of opposites in a variety of rhythms and textures.
I combine different materials in order to overcome the challenge of achieving harmony and unity in my work. Some of my paintings are highly textured and have imbedded objects.
I explore this fine line of ambiguity between pure abstraction and implied realism through the process of layering color and organic texture. My objective is to evoke a sensation or memory in the viewer, of a place remembered or imagined, without literal reference to landscape.
