Join Andrew Denman as he shares the secrets to his dramatically different approach to painting in an easy, step-by-step tutorial. Denman is known for his beautiful portrayals of wildlife in a unique style combining stylization and abstraction with realism. Get ready to explore an approach you will learn nowhere else. You will employ a series of thick, impasto underpaintings, cover over with many layers of gesso, then sand down to reveal astonishing textures, patterns, and colors, which can either stand on their own or provide brilliant underlayment for natural textures. Through a series of easy-to-follow exercises, you will have all the tools necessary to practice or even master this technique to create a variety of effects in any genre or subject of painting. If you want to try something entirely new, this is your workshop! Some materials included for this class.
