In this workshop, Jacqueline will teach you various artistic ways to use watercolor paints with water-soluble and permanent inks to create various paintings of butterflies, birds, and flowers. Using a unique Japanese paper, we will create loose and colorful watercolor paintings. It is the perfect substrate for embellishing by adding inks, acrylic paints, rubber stamps, other creative mixed media objects, and added elements. Choosing your favorite masterpiece, we will finish by adhering it to wooden board creating a finished painting that can be mounted and showcased on the wall! All levels are welcome.
