MASTERCLASS - One Subject - Many Takes: Finding Originality Through a Series with Ingrid Christensen
One Subject - Many Takes: Finding Originality Through a Series with Ingrid Christensen
A single subject - even a single image - can provide the spark for many paintings. By varying techniques, compositions, concepts, and color palettes, you can create a series in which each painting refers to its source yet pushes beyond simple reproduction.
In this workshop we'll develop several paintings with the aim of pushing beyond our usual painting techniques and habits.
We'll start each piece with a different method and intention, launching it along a unique path. Avoiding our habits of technique and decision making, we'll explore the "what if" of creativity and strive to bring experimentation and play to your work.
The resulting series will surprise you with its scope and give you the courage to take more painting risks in the future.
This workshop is suitable for oil and acrylic painters!
