If you like to take online workshops and you have the time...this is a great workshop to sign up for and it's absolutely free!(NOTE: If you can't see the whole video, double click on it and you can see it full screen. To exit the full screen video just click your escape button.)
You can go to StrathmoreArtist.Com and scroll down until you see the Strathmore 2012 Online Workshop Series box. Click on it and you can register for 3 different workshops that Strathmore is putting on for free. I can't tell you enough how great these workshops are. Each instructor puts together a series of video lessons, downloadable PDF's and different discussions and forums to share your work, ask questions and meet other students.
Don't be shy! These workshops are for all levels!
Last night I completed the first weeks lessons. Here are the results...and for the most part I'm fairly happy with what came up with, but I think when I have time I'll probably give it another go and try to be a little bit more original.
|Step One: Using found objects for background stencil patterns|
|Step Two: Use Acrylic paints to further the development of shapes|
|Step Three: Use pens, india inks and oil pastels to doodle ...|
|Step Four: Final embellishing with white correction fluid pen!|
