Gold Leaf Expressive Painting 3 Week Workshop
Rumriver Art Center
2665 4th Avenue, Anoka,
Gold has fascinated people for millennia. The use of gold in contemporary art makes for rich, complex and glowing ethereal aesthetics.
In this course, we will immerse ourselves in learning to create expressive artworks using gold leaves, collage and abstract twists on realism. We will learn gilding techniques, collaging, composition strategies, color mixing to create a balanced composition with muted and bold colors, and acrylic painting techniques. I will be sharing my process of warming up a canvas with loose expressive thoughts and gradually working towards tight refined strokes. Reference pictures will be shared prior to the workshop for you to select your subject from.
