This is a video series of recording’s of Deb Chaney’s Energizing and Experimental Abstract Painting with Mixed Media and Acrylics Workshop. The workshop was originally taught in 6 weeks at Brocke House Community Center in Vancouver, BC Canada. By watching these videos you will learn the fundamentals of abstract painting with acrylics and mixed media – basic design composition and colour. Building on this foundation, each class will progressively introduce new techniques and skills. Techniques include glazing, layering, removal, staining, lifting of paints as well as layering in collage elements. How to achieve line, depth,texture & interest in their paintings will be covered. We will be using liquid and heavy body acrylics, as well as acrylic mediums & gels, and paper collage elements. Enjoy!
