Acrylic Abstract Painting Workshop with Maureen Gasek
Last Saturday, I jumped on an opportunity to take an afternoon workshop at Fox River Academy of Music and Art with members of Kendall Art Guild. Surprised to meet another Young Rembrandt teacher from Peotone. The workshop was a bargain and fees just covered supplies used. We considered elements of composition and rolled right into creating a finished piece in workshop. Maureen demonstrated many different techniques to try and working through the processes with problem areas to achieve a pleasing result. I stepped out of my comfort zone and flew by the seat of my pants. Happy with my end result, but having a hard time seeing it as abstract art. My paleolithic elements remind me of cave paintings. Can you see the giraffe and elephant? Upside down of course.
