Week 10: Spring into Action with Abstract Expression

Leave a comment

Is your subconscious celebrating spring? Time to let your spontaneity lead you as we explore Abstract Expressionism.  Taking inspiration from action painters, Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning, let your intuition and paint fly! Both these painters found rhythm in their painting process, so don’t dilly-dally during this exercise- keep that paint moving.  We recommend using acrylic inks (High Flow Acrylic is a great choice) to tint your acrylic mediums and extend your color and creative options.  Whether you choose a spring color palette or not, try drip painting in the style of Pollock, or a figure in the style of de Kooning.

This week at Wet Paint, all acrylic inks are 10% off!  Mention the Weekly Workouts at the counter to receive your discount!  Golden Acrylics Clear Tar Gel Medium is especially great for flingin’!

These Weekly Workouts will be posted as Events in our Facebook Group, click here to join!
