Welcome to Rewilding, an acrylic workshop!
I’ve always loved to take walks in the woods.
It’s my favorite place to go when life gets too hectic and I need
some grounding and rewilding.
Nature has always sparked my creativity like nothing else. The peace and quiet
we experience while out in the forest is refreshing and regenerating, but it also
helps us tune into our own senses and connect with the world around us
in a special way.
In this workshop we will paint a beautiful woodland scene where we will picture
ourselves and how we feel while in nature.
I’ll also show you my acrylic layering techniques to achieve a soft but
loose effect to our painting.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN IN THIS CLASS:
- My favorite acrylic layering techniques
- Getting inspired from nature
