Hello friends. If you haven't visited in a while, I'm hosting two classes with Jeanne Oliver. One is an online class called Close To Home: A Watercolor Landscape Journey. The other is a class at Jeanne's beautiful home and studio in scenic Colorado, coming up in September. It's called Field Guide: A Nature Inspired Sketchbook. We'll be learning more about sketching and watercolor and will be taking our supplies outside to sketch scenes from Jeanne's beautiful land. Both classes are going to be jam packed with tips to jump start your art. We'll learn about sketching, watercolors, setting up a palette, supplies, and taking it all outside. You can learn more about each class by checking out the blog post links I've provided above. I'd love to have you join me in this creative journey.
In this post I'm sharing a project that will be similar to lesson in the Close To Home class. You can get an idea of what the class has to offer, however all of the lessons in class will be in video format. I can't wait for it to begin on August 22nd.
Experimenting with mixed media and watercolor can give some fun results. To get my creative juices flowing I like to sometimes get out my Dylusions journals and just have some fun. In this journal, I've prepared each page ahead of time with a piece of vintage paper, some gesso, etc. So every time I turn to a new page, I'm given a new challenge.
