Oceanic Abstraction - Louise describes her unique discipline that she self-created as her ‘’fluid, dreamy, watery side, and emotional side.’’ Using all oil mediums, Louise will share her personal mastery of how she blends various oil mediums to create a dreamy, fluid and masterly skillful technique. This is like NO other workshop out there, and is very messy so wear your glad rags! This is a hugely calming process of going inward and just being with the paint.

Louise describes this as her calm, introvert and highly focused trait of her character. You will learn how to measure figurative form traditionally, to get each body limb and part in proportion, before learning how to mix and blend, using a dry brush work-technique, she also taught herself. This requires extreme patience, around 100 hours per painting, and a want to learn how to master your skill to accurate perfection. Oil based mediums are used in this workshop.
