Improve your brushwork with fast, loose, and bold techniques from Patti Mollica!
Infuse your acrylic paintings with vibrant color and movement using brushwork instruction from artist and instructor Patti Mollica. Patti will teach you how to paint using bold, gestural brushwork that fills your works with the energy and direction of the paint passages and brush strokes. You'll learn how to include your movement and application of paint to create texture and interest in your finished works. Patti begins this workshop with an exploration of acrylic painting materials and teaches you the basics of bold brush techniques. Then, follow along with three exercises that will help you loosen up your brushwork and gain confidence in your new, bold painting.
