Description

Whether you’ve never picked up a paint brush before or you’re looking to hone your painting skills and develop your style, ‘Acrylic in Action’ will give you the inspiration to get creating!

The workshop will focus on painting portraits (faces) but these skills and approach could be used to paint landscapes, abstracts or anything else the mind can fathom.

With a key focus on spontaneity and intuition, this workshop will encourage you to develop and embrace your own style and find comfort in your own technique and aesthetic. If you’re looking for a highly technical and academic approach to acrylic painting, this course will not be for you… On the other hand, if you’re open to new ideas and want to be freed form the handcuffs that tell you ‘this is how you should paint’- you will feel right at home! Welcome.

The workshop will focus on two paintings per student. The first is a ‘fast and intuitive’ paint which you will finish within the workshop. The second you will begin and progress and, depending on style and speed, may need to be finished outside workshop hours.

About David Bakunowicz

Dkoons (David Bakunowicz) is a self-taught artist with a background in architectural and geometric photography who currently paints chiefly in acrylics. Despite working in the corporate banking world, and with a background studying law- the approach to his artwork could not be further from the text book.

Combining  the key influences of Neo-Expressionism and a love of the abstract together with a fascination with street art, Dkoons’ portraits are dominated by a rough and rudimentary style with an often ‘unfinished’ aesthetic.

If not painting, Dkoons is likely drinking coffee, concocting a new project or convincing others to create something!

LESLEY

22 August 2016 • Acrylic in Action – Beginners

David didn't so much teach as inspired a way of painting that got you out of the sense of there being a "right" way or technique, and instead let you play and explore and find your own style. The class was great fun and really empowering for a recovering perfectionist like me! I left feeling like I could enjoy the process of playing with art, and that's exactly what I was looking for.
