"How To Energize Your Paintings? An Acrylic Workshop at Reddi Arts!

" Why energize your paintings, isn't it enough just to make it look like something? Of course it's not!
We live in an energetic world, and if it lacks energy, it's dead!
To inspire us and make us want to look at a painting over
and over, it must give us something. Energy is that gift." -Gordon Meggison
 

When I first started painting acrylics years ago I just wanted to do a decent painting that looked like something. Time passed , and the technical difficulties receded with practice, but I found something was missing, a dramatic impact. Many factors go into building a beautiful memorable image. Naturally you don't want to reinvent the wheel, or spend years being frustrated. Another set of eyes and a guiding hand can speed the process up to get you to a more satisfying painting. -Gordon Meggison
