Jo Moncrief’s Abstract Acrylic Workshop 2017
The focus of this workshop will be on ways to create abstract acrylic paintings that are luminous, with great contrast and interest.
The emphasis will be for each student to understand the steps in creating abstract art & complete as many paintings as possible during the workshop. Jo Moncrief will explain how she uses composition, color, value, the principles & elements of design, contrast and the rule of thirds while working through a painting to finality.
She will demonstrate the advantages of a limited palette, the Munsell Color Wheel vs. the traditional color wheel and how grays enhance any painting. She will demonstrate how to use color as a value and the surprising benefits of learning how to read paint labels. You will also be taught the bias of colors and how they affect your palette and the importance of a focal point.
