Late Day Sun - Acrylic 24x24
He normally only gives one workshop a year and it is geared towards the more experienced artist. I have been trying to attend for a number of years but life has always gotten in the way.
So why a Hook workshop? I have admired his strong compositions and use of bold colour. He is a layering painter leaving spots of colour/brush strokes for a bold confident look. He works only in heavy body acrylics - Liquatex exclusively and uses mainly Bright brushes - different from the way I work. So, as much as anything I take it "just in case" - in case he can offer something that will advance my progress.
We will take three weeks heading back home, travelling through northern Arizona and southern Utah. Have both my oil and acrylic plein air kits and hope to make lots of small starts.
Will post my view of this workshop and our travels.
