This highly energized painting workshop emphasizing loose and creative experimentation. Expect an intense, concentrated and lively workshop where you will create many works of art using spontaneity for maximum effect. It’s Like 4 Years of Art School! In just a few days you will know more than most artists about color, composition and your painting intentions. Burridge’s popular “Loosen Up” workshop nurtures individual success and personal enrichment with a big emphasis on daily painting projects at your own pace. It is stress-free, but be warned; you could end up with too much enthusiasm for painting. Burridge’s flagship workshop offers a variety of painting subjects for everyone. This workshop is designed for the professional painter who is stuck in a style, as well as for the novice who wants to conquer their fear of painting.
Starting with small 10”x10” multiple warm-up painting exercises up to larger-format paintings, Burridge’s positive approach towards the act of painting will inspire you to loosen up, have fun again and paint more! His critiques are famous for “how to look at your own work” and “where do I go from here?” This workshop has become a must for artists who want the confidence and permission to paint the way they have always wanted to paint. Students will take home preprinted notes of useful and need-to-know information. A positive attitude is a must! Burridge’s newest color wheel technique is also included.
