Adventures in Colour and Mixed Media Workshop with Melanie Morstad


September 28 and 29, 2019

This workshop is an action packed exploration of the beautifully saturated colours of acrylic inks and mixed media.  You will be working on a flat surface; dripping, pouring, spraying, brushing and scratching into the surface.  We will play with texture by adding acrylic gels, pastes and collage, working on many paintings at once. We will explore trees, night skies and landscape. Come prepared to have fun and work on many paintings.

“Light dancing its abstract reflections on the water’s surface, trees bending to the wind’s fury, the quiet contemplation of a gurgling creek, the passionate reds of a setting sun. Bold energetic colours are my emotional link to these personal moments in time. Images emerge on my canvas starting with a spontaneous process of pouring, dripping and spraying acrylic inks. The physicality of painting is like dancing the tango at the beginning, slowing to a waltz near the painting’s completion as my brush strokes become gentler and less hurried.”
