online painting workshops for adults
Soon Luz will be offering online abstract painting workshops worldwide! The first workshop, Landscape in lines is developed in cooperation with photographer Anthony Verolme. If you want to learn more, please sign up!
the magic of abstract painting
What’s so amazing about abstract painting? You can fully focus on the magic of colors and composition. Because it doesn’t have to ‘be something’, it’s just what it is.
When working on your art piece, you learn how to translate your story into colors and compositions that explain your world better than words ever could.
landscapes in lines
Have you always been excited by beautiful abstract landscapes and had a desire to create one yourself? How can you design your perfect composition? And, most importantly, how can you truly tell your story in a painting? Well, in this online painting workshop you learn how to create an art piece with several acrylic layers and a strong compositional build up with lines. But first we step outside to discover the great Dutch landscapes and see how we can use their natural lines in our sketches. Last but not least, we enjoy the adventure of being outside. Because that’s one of the best things about being in nature and sketching!
Next we move inside, to capture our specific story. What was the best of what we experienced outside and how can we put that into a perfect painting? We develop a color palette that matches the story. After that, we apply our first layer and finally put our favorite sketch on the canvas. You get a step by step plan to finish your painting. More information will follow here as soon as possible. I hope you’ll be joining us!
painting with acrylic
Luz is passionate about acrylic paint. If you look in the portfolio you will see that almost all the work is done with acrylics. It’s no surprise that this will be the material we will use to tell our stories with in most of the online painting workshops. Another thing we will discover in, future workshops, is mixed media techniques. For each online painting workshop you’ll get a list of supplies that you need.
