Not Another Class!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, I am afraid it is true. I have taken yet another online class! I know I said I was taking a break but this one was too good to pass up. I have taken previous classes with Carla Sonheim but this one was with Diane Culhane. There were so many new techniques in the class I don't know which one to do first! One of the really big take-aways I got from the class was to use a gessoboard or a birch board as your palette. At the end of your painting session be sure and spread out the lumps of paint and in the end you have a nice abstract board to begin painting on rather than a blank white one. Very helpful if you are like me and get intimidated by the blank white board.
These flowers are done using a blown paint technique. You can use either a straw or a canned gas like you would use on a computer keyboard for cleaning. I just blew and blew and blew.
I like the abstract quality of the flowers yet they still read as flowers.
Well, back to work and have a great weekend!
