If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then this workshop is for you! David Kessler will teach you how to do each of these realizing there should also be a firm foundation of structure for your paintings using line, shape, value, color and texture. This workshop is not only about painting abstract compositions, but also about learning to loosen up and paint more freely.
