Lois Perdue at the easel

 

Learn how to create your own bold, vibrant abstracts in Lois Perdue’s popular “Beyond Small Abstracts” workshop.  She will be teaching new methods of applying textures.  Students of all stages are welcome to this workshop, as Lois will instruct you on how to begin an abstract painting, how to expand smaller works to larger paintings and how to incorporate a variety of intriguing textures and techniques onto Yupo paper!

 

“Mountain Climbing” by Lois Perdue, Acrylic on Watercolor Paper

 

Lois, who has lived in South Florida her entire life, has been recognized in National, State and Local juried art competitions.  Her colorful, abstract expressionist paintings have won many awards.   Lois regularly takes workshop classes with Nationally recognized artists who provide their expertise and enthusiasm for her to continue her passion for painting!

 

 

” Neptune’s Reef” by Lois Perdue, Mixed media on Yupo

 

 

Lois tells The Rickie Report, “After years of working in other creative fields, I discovered a passion for Abstract painting. I had briefly studied oil painting, sculpting and weaving, but entering that first abstract class was the beginning of an amazing journey. Here I could creatively use my energy, spontaneity and vision. I discovered this process is more than just painting reality. It is the opportunity to paint where nothing is ever “wrong” and there are no rules. I use feelings, fantasy and imagination combined with colors, shapes, materials, concepts and design to create my own way of expressing myself through Abstract Art”.

 

“Beach” by Lois Perdue, Mixed media on Yupo

 

 

Many of Lois’ abstract paintings begin on wood panel, watercolor paper or synthetic paper called Yupo with a textural layering to create dimension. She explains, “I apply thin washes of watercolor first and many translucent glazes as the under painting. Then I use bold, vibrant acrylics and inks along with the markings of calligraphy and brush strokes. Abstract Expressionism is a technique that is generally based on free and automatic “action painting”. As I begin to paint my experimental abstracts–sometimes intuitively, sometimes instinctively–I often approach the canvas with a mix of emotions. It is a very personal journey I take when I paint that hopefully, conveys a variety of emotions in viewers”.

 

” Moody Blues ” by Lois Perdue, Mixed media on Yupo

 

Lois is an active member of a number of art-related local, State and National art organizations including the Florida Watercolor Society, Gold Coast Watercolor Societies, Weston Art Guild, Plantation Art Guilds, National League of American Pen Women/Ft. Lauderdale Branch, International Society of Experimental Artists, ArtServe and 12 Voices, an organization of professional artists.
