Have you ever wondered how to Loosen-Up your painting style? Paint with more Freedom? Be more Spontaneous? Be more Expressive? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then my Bigger, Faster, Fresher, Looser Abstract Painting Workshop is for you! I will teach you how to do each of these realizing there should also be a firm foundation of structure for your paintings using shape, value, color, edges and center of interest. Here is some of what we’ll cover:

How to loosen up and paint spontaneously with no pre-planning

How to use big brushes and lots of juicy paint

How to paint from your heart, not your head

How to create fresh beautiful color without making “mud”
