We will explore a variety of acrylic methods with a focus on landscape, organic forms from nature and related abstracted experimental compositions.   We will examine methods for creating studies of skies, clouds, and various depictions of the land, trees, and skies.   Diverse methods of experimenting with acrylic, mixed media along with perspective and colour theory will be explored.
