In this workshop we will create a beautiful acrylic and inked background using stencils, stamps and distressed inks. Once we are finished with our background, we will bring in our focal point. Choose an image from my collection of magazines or bring your own image that you would like to use. Your image can be a person, animal, flower etc. Whatever suits your taste.
After our Drawing Warm-Up we will do a Quick Sketch (Gestural Drawing) for no more than 10 minutes. We are going for speed rather than accuracy. This is a drawing exercise, we are not looking for perfection, this is just another way of loosening up.
We will place our image over carbon paper and trace our image onto our background. Or, if you are comfortable drawing freehand, please do! This is a great way to train your hand how to draw an image. After you trace your image, you can alter it with additional drawing and painting. With more and more practice using this technique...before you know it, you'll be drawing without tracing paper!
Every student will leave with a finish painting on a MDF Panel ready for hanging.
Students of every experience level are welcome!
