Have you ever wanted to paint a big abstract canvas? Or maybe you already have and you are itching to grow your skills and confidence in this area.

There's nothing quite like the feeling of moving your body and splashing paint around on a large canvas. It's liberating but it can also be daunting! Where do you start, what do you need and how do you know when it is finished?

In this class, I am going to break it down step-by-step, or as I like to say layer-by-layer. You will see me paint a big piece (1 metre by 1 metre) from start to finish. Throughout the process, I will be sharing the techniques and tips that I use in my own studio practice.
