Great news! I have finished several painting classes with a top notch abstract artist Named Gaston Carrio. We got to work immediately working on several studies using some drawing techniques. We then applied these ideas to several 9 x 12 painting studies. We moved quickly and have progressed toward larger 18 x 24 pieces. We are using acrylic as a medium an tend to use very little water in the paint mix. I have to say I am very happy with the way the results have progressed. We are meeting on Tuesdays at my friend Juans Gallery and frame shop. Cheers!
