In Acrylic Impressionism, it is the feeling of the finished piece that is important. Using photo references and still life objects, we will be working to capture the visual impression or feeling of the moment vs. achieving an accurate depiction.
Painting with small brushes and palette knives, we’ll experience an outpour of emotion and energy in our work and experiment with the shifting effect of light and color.
