Learn how to paint like Willem de Kooning, one of the key artists of the postwar Abstract Expressionist style, also referred to as "action painting," with IN THE STUDIO instructor Corey D'Augustine.

A Dutch-born American abstract expressionist painter, with a range of concreteness and abstraction at the same time, featuring improvisation, flexibility and and screens filled with tensions. He is called the master of the new action painting along with fellow artist Jackson Pollock, but unlike Pollock, most of his works have features that depicts various figures. 


Sometimes, he also stuck to reproducible materials, such as figures and landscapes, which revealed the tension, improvisation and flexibility between the two areas of concreteness and abstraction.


The following is a reproduction of his work process by instructor Corey D'Augustine.


’Augustine has been responsive to critics in the comments, releasing the follow up Part 2 video, above, to address the absurdity of actually “doing a De Kooning-esque painting in a day.” Additionally, as he notes above, De Kooning “reinvented himself again and again and again,” meaning “there certainly isn’t one way, there certainly aren’t a hundred ways, to make a De Kooning since he was relentlessly inventive.”
