mixed water-media on rag paper.
Different for me I know.
This is a workshop painting and is still
not finished. I may have to do some tweaking
after I have time to look at it.
It was an exciting and very busy day.
The instructors are
two award winning sisters
who have a mission to free
artists from the constrains of
the traditional, and introduce
new methods to achieve
Their motto is
COURAGE LOOKS GOOD!
Today, the first of two days out of four,
Nancy Frost Begin
(Click her link at bottom)
The painting above was worked on top
of an old painting which we had varnished.
I went freely into it with
great inspiration after watching Nancy's
amazing demo using gouache.
She applied it in a certain way and then
moved some around with various tools
allowing random areas of the original
painting to show through.
This created beautiful abstract areas.
My flower would look dorky on a regular
background, but I feel this method
provided some oomph!
Tomorrow we try another exciting method
involving tempera paint and permanent black ink.
