Subtractive painting involves adding layers of paint to a ground, then selectively wiping them away to create an image.
Subtractive painting involves adding layers of paint to a ground, then selectively wiping them away to create an image. Using Golden OPEN acrylics on top of molding paste, and in conjunction with glazes, it’s possible to create highly colorful compositions with layers of depth. This exciting technique is typically done with oil paint, but the fluidity of the OPEN acrylics allows this method to be completely “solvent-free”. Landscapes, portraits, realism or abstract imagery are all appropriate for the subtractive process. Students will have the opportunity to create several paintings in class, the special fee covers the cost of all materials needed.
If you would like to work from your own image please bring a color and black and white copy of the image. I would recommend bringing several different images to choose from.
Cost: $300 with all materials included ($75 value)
