This is an amazing course and I'm so excited to apply some of these methods in my own work - how perfect for rock and lichen patterns!

I was blown away by your collage papers course and this takes those ideas to another level, absolutely brilliant 🤩

Revolutionise your creativity!

In this new course, you will learn how to manipulate paint to create those “impossible” marks with ease and elevate your artwork.

Indirect Mark Making is a term I use to describe creating marks away from my paintings and then transferring them to my work. Why? Quite simply because these amazing marks are virtually impossible to paint directly! I will be showing you how I harness the natural behaviour of acrylic paint on various surfaces to bring something new and different into my paintings.

You will not only learn how to make these marks but also how to integrate them into your work, making them a seamless and coherent element in a multi-layered painting.

MAKE YOUR WORK VISUALLY IRRESISTABLE

These kind of marks are compelling. I often use them to obscure parts of my work. Rather than, say, using a semi-opaque glaze to cover up a section of a painting, this way of obscuring draws the viewer in. It’s kind of visually irresistible.

If you want to communicate something with your art, it has to (as a first step) attract the eye and keep it on your work. Artists have different tools at their disposal to achieve that, such as compositional techniques and colour, but also the marks we use.

Just like a writer communicates by making his or her writing compelling so that you keep turning the page, an artist needs to keep the viewer engaged so that they want to keep looking, and finding more and more things to engage with in the work. These techniques help you achieve just that!
