This video introduces the painting techniques and compositional approaches that will help you to develop your art beyond the purely representational, and move on to bolder semi-abstract or even abstract styles of work.
Understand the stages of how a painting can develop from photographs through preliminary sketches, painting in watercolour, painting in oil and finally combining all mediums in a finished abstract painting of a ‘Norfolk Poppyfield’. Brian thoroughly discusses his approach to abstract painting and invites you to share your ‘initial’ thoughts both before and after you have completed the video.
