Abstract Portraits

Abstract Portraits with Jenny Long

Attendees will be introduced to the tools and techniques that Jenny demonstrates as they create their own abstract portraits. From the importance of color mixing as a foundational component, to using a variety of tools and applications of paint to create interesting visual elements, Jenny will go through the process of beginning a work in an abstract expressionist manner, followed by tonal build of a figure with palette knife acrylic applications and drawing techniques to marry the visual excitement that exists between balancing order with chaos.

Students will have the chance to create paintings of their own subject choice whether it be a bird, tree, person, etc. Students are encouraged to bring a reference photo to be inspired by or can use source material that Jenny has in the studios.  This 2-part series will take you through the painting process from start to finish, with an emphasis on color mixing and acrylic painting techniques.  All levels welcome.
