Finding new ways to put more Life and Energy into your Acrylic Paintings?

Welcome to "Acrylic Abstract Painting - Loosen Up".

In this course I'm going to be showing you several ways that you can loosen up your acrylic abstract paintings.

You may be thinking "What dies loosen up mean?" or "Why should you want to loosen up my paintings?" or simply "How can you loosen up your abstract paintings?"

Let's start at the beginning. Loosen Up means giving your paintings a more expressive, emotionally charged feeling to them. It means learning to trust your own intuition more.

And loosening up your work will release more of your unique inner creativity, allowing you to express yourself better as an artist.

So How Do You Do That?

How do you loosen up? Well that's what this course is all about. I'll be sharing with you techniques that I've personally used to help me, and that you can use also to get looser more expressive compositions.

Now some of these techniques are a little weird, but I'll ask you to keep an open mind and just try them.

You'll Learn 

  • The Long Brush Exercise
  • Attack and Retreat Exercise
  • Atmospheric Painting Technique
  • Juicy Brush Approach to Painting Abstracts

I promise you'll have a Lot of Fun and by the time you complete the course you'll know how to Loosen Up Your Paintings!
