Favorite Pet Portraits!
February 6 & 7 at Ciel Gallery, 6-8:30 pm
Use several different mixed media painting and collaging techniques to create a portrait of your pet (or any favorite animal) on a 12-inch square panel. We’ll use a high-contrast photocopy of your pet as a transfer; all other materials will be provided.
During the first session we’ll create the background and adhere the transfer. In the second class, we’ll uncover the dried transfer and integrate the image with more painted and collaged layers.
What better place to join the visual journaling craze than beautiful Cortona, Italy? Let me guide you through the techniques of quick drawing, collaging and watercolor painting as we record the sights around us. I will show you how to look for telling details and edit larger views, combining travel tickets, postcards, maps and photos for finished journal pages.
