Virginia Cobb uses acrylic painting techniques to develop three abstract paintings, each started by emphasizing a different design element: line, shape, texture.


DVD PREVIEW



In the first half of her abstract painting video, she builds a rich under structure. She creates, destroys, and creates again unpredictable shapes, textures and color combinations. In doing so Cobb establishes multiple layers of depth and mystery. Her final process is a rational analysis that evaluates color temperature, edges, shapes and balance. She applies advanced art techniques like linkage, depth, rhythm and harmony to an amazing result. In the process of this art DVD, you see Cobb's bold and inventive handling of the media while "listening in" on her thought process. Her daring solutions reflect a lifetime of experimentation and experience. The result is three very different paintings that have in common strength, beauty and mystery.

Bonus Clip: Imbedding Color


In this clip from her DVD workshop, Acrylic Abstract Painting: The Evolving Image, Virginia Cobb shares a strategy for getting started with a non-objective composition. Virginia textures her entire paper using her fingers, a squeegee, and a brayer. She encourages you to treat this layer as an under-painting and search for shapes in your textures as you refine your design.
