FROM REALISM TO ABSTRACTION – DECEMBER 22, 2020 at 1:00pm EST (2-2.5 hrs.) – $50.00 – Recorded Version

Join artist and award-winning David Dunlop for an exciting new 2.5-hour landscape painting workshop – From Realism to Abstraction.  This workshop takes you on an improvisational journey from painting what is recognizable to creating mysteries of uncertainty, ambiguity and abstraction.   David examines our fascination with looking into nature’s chaos and discovering abstract patterns in nature and in cities.  These elements invite our attention to their broken rhythms, their complex textures, their color and tonal variations, and their invitation to explore mysterious appearances.

David explores artistic sources of inspiration from the past as well as contemporary artists to analyze compositions and to create a framework for painting several demonstrations in oil and mixed media.  In this workshop we will follow a path out of the familiar visual world and into visual mystery through painting, learning new techniques and exploring new possibilities to incorporate into your paintings.   There are no individual critiques in this workshop but David will be happy to answer your questions.

Oil and Mixed Media Painting Demonstrations.   These demonstrations will involve layering mixed media and will offer an exciting guide to finding, designing and painting beautiful, luminous landscapes using old master techniques in a contemporary manner.
