Acrylic Painting Demonstration by Nancy Eckels
Nancy Eckels will demonstrate acrylic painting at the Aug. 20, meeting of the Santa Clarita Artists Association (SCAA). This event is free, open to the public.
Since her work is totally abstract, it comes entirely from Eckels’ head, heart, and imagination. Anything that has contributed to her sense of color, texture and composition, becomes the basis of what eventually comes from her hands and brushes.
“A creative block is overcome only by working on your art, not sitting on a couch waiting for inspiration. My paintings are a combination of sculpture and painting. I begin with a texture medium, which I sculpt by shaping, carving and manipulating on the canvas. When I apply the texture, I keep in mind a loose composition and try to imagine what it might become. I want to make something new. I’ve often thought that abstract art is the purest form of what people consider a one-of-a-kind art,” Eckels says.
Come early, standing room only by 6:30 p.m.
