Come along and be inspired by the use of texture. Catherine Mitchell will show us how to create with texture, when painting with acrylics.
Catherine has been painting for over 30 years, is self taught and teaches at a number of venues including Estuary Arts Centre in Orewa.
Part of this goal is to create dimension and texture. We can do this adding light and shade but also by adding mediums to the paint to create interesting textures. Texture stimulates two different senses, sight and touch.
This 2-hour demonstration will cover the use of some texture products on the market: Palette knife painting, Liquitex Resin sand, Matisse gel medium, Matisse Liquid beads, Matisse Lang Sand, Matisse Ground Marble and Jo Sonja texture paste.
Catherine will demonstrate how to use these mediums on partly completed projects. You will also see examples of ways to create texture in your art.
