This workshop has already exceeded my expectations. Misty is a wonderful teacher. There were 4 instructional videos ready to view first thing Saturday morning. Cup of coffee (or 2) in hand, I watched....over and over. Went into the studio and started the homework. I had the best time. The above is the first background I painted. Little touches of metallic here and there........
This background is actually 10" x 30". I really like the long narrow format....and it's just the beginning......
Using gel medium to transfer images and as a resist. A swiping of ink over the top.
.....my first attempt at painting a landscape
.....and my 2nd attempt, I like this one much better. One thing I am learning is that when you feel like giving up, you feel like your piece is garbage....you keep going, take it further, try something new and different than what you are used to, you learn along the way and sometimes you discover something new that works for you and had you given in to your "critic", you would have totally missed it.
I have lots and lots of art books, books on techniques....one thing that I know about myself is that I am a visual learner. This class is so great in that I can watch the videos over and over. Watch the subtleties and develop my own way of working.
