Upcoming Programs for our LAA/PAL General Meetings:
May 14: Program in Pleasanton, featuring Bev Lindsay demonstrating painting and pouring acrylic with assistance from Pat Smith.
POURING Acrylic paint? Really? Anyone could do that! And as it turns out, that’s true. But those of you who have learned many of the basics of art—composition, color harmony, value, focal point, etc. are way ahead of the game. You can use that knowledge to make something really delightful, and have a good time doing it! Here are some examples of my earliest poured paintings:
They have some color harmony, some value variety, some basic composition. Very fun, very exciting to watch what the colors do as the paint decides how to flow. Then the challenge is how to manipulate the paint on the canvas and cover the entire canvas for optimal results. There are quite a few ways to manipulate and modify the painting after it covers the canvas. I haven’t even tried all of them.
June 11, 7:30 pm at the Bothwell Arts Center, 2466 8th Street, Livermore, Anna Edwards of Oakland, who works in Acrylics, will demonstrate abstracts. Free to the public.
Regardless of location, all General Meetings of PAL & LAA are intended for members of both groups! Please take the short drive between Livermore and Pleasanton. The more the merrier!
