Abstract, colourful, emotive and ethereal are all words Belinda Marshall uses to describe her art practice. Drawing inspiration from the prismatic art world around her, she builds layer upon layer to create the intensely captivating pastel and neon hues you recognise in her art works.
During this workshop, you will be gently guided through a project working with acrylics on a wood panel giving you an introduction to colour mixing composition and working with layers.
Belinda will be teaching the workshop based on her years of self-taught creative practice - expect a responsive, intuitive and mediative approach. You will have the opportunity to play and experiment and be inspired by your own creative potential. We like the sound of that!
