Matisse Dry Mediums 12 - 2pm
Wendy Shortland will create a textured abstract landscape using the new Matisse Dry Mediums. This
innovative range of eighteen minerals and man-made additives is designed to be mixed with existing
Matisse mediums, creating amazing effects. Wendy will explain the specific function of each of these
immensely varied dry mediums. She will demonstrate the creation of superb textural effects as a
surface for painting. In the second step Wendy will complete the art work with glowing Matisse
acrylic paints and finally enhance the surface using some decorative dry mediums, perhaps gleaming
Glass Beads or glinting Black Flake Hex. A project sheet will be available as a step-by-step guide for
artists wishing to paint a similar landscape of their own at home.
