This is the MASTER course on Expressive Painting for painters at any level--even "newbies" who yearn to paint expressively with lots of color and feeling. It is designed to teach you a method so that you can paint your own inspirations not just copy what I am painting. You will learn a "start loose, stay loose" 7 Step Method of Expressive Painting in beautiful color. You will also learn to find inspiration for your paintings, mix brilliant color with no “mud” (unless you want it!), and you can watch me use this method to paint several paintings from start to finish. Through demos, videos, slideshows, handouts and “paint-alongs" I will guide you to create your own unique vision unlike anyone else. This course is designed to “jumpstart” you to painting expressively with your own style.
