Held at the fabulous Indigo Palette, we gathered on a Sunday afternoon and painted while drinking wine - what could be better?!?! Believe In Your Beauty
I took these students step by step thru a mixed media painting. We used this canvas as a guide, and the students all created their own vision using their own special photographs.
Students hard at work
I showed them how to start with an intention in watercolor crayon underneath the first layer of paint. We then experimented with laying paint on with a credit card and with a paint brush....playing with the color and seeing how it reacted to the water color crayon.
The group loved the saran wrap technique that creates fun and crazy texture. Slowly we built up layers of paint and collage elements. Everyone's canvas turned out different - and very beautifully! These three were from a family who just added a new baby to their family! These gals had a blast with their canvases....and look how lovely they came out! I finished one up myself - and left the picture slot open so I can customize it for some lucky person. If you have a photo that would look just perfect on here, click here to see how to set that up!
