One day Workshops

Thick Paint & Expressive Brushstrokes

Acrylics & Oils. All abilities

Often overlooked, but one of the most important aspects of any medium...paint consistency!

This isn't the only way to work, but it is certainly very fun, very expressive and gives some fantastic results.

If you're looking to loosen up, get more expressive and gain confidence working with a more direct approach, and thicker paint, this ones for you!

Along with the usual principles of painting we will be looking at:

  • How to mix paint

  • How to apply paint

  • How to build up a painting quickly

  • How to setup a painting for expressive brushstrokes

  • How to use the brush and the many ways you can

  • Where and how to use thick paint

  • Why thick paint is so useful

  • How thick paint can bring a painting to life

  • How, once you have the hang of it, thick paint actually becomes easier to work with, more fun to work with and solves many of the problems we encounter in both acrylics and oils
