“Don’t wait for inspiration, it comes while working.” Henri Matisse
Isabelle is back with another terrific class using alcohol inks.
This class is intended for people who have “experimented” with Alcohol Ink and want to add another dimension to their “playing”.
We will create two paintings using an acetate and a cradled panel. Please note there are lots of samples to show you the process you will be learning in class. Final projects will not be exactly like this as you will choose your own colours etc.
The first one will be a flower (6”x 6”) the second one a winter landscape (8”x10”).
We will first use white acrylic to paint the back of our our cradled wood panels.
The flower will first be created with canned air on the acetate, then matched on the inside of the wood panel with darker/lighter tones, creating another layer. A centre will be added.
The landscape will be created with Alcohol Ink on the acetate (front and back). We will then match the “transparency” painting to the inside of our panel and paint a loose background with Alcohol inks/watercolour pencils to match our first painting and create a second layer, thus creating depth.
Be prepared to experiment, explore, and have some fun!
Isabelle’s classes tend to be long (:-))so come on time so we can start promptly, but not too early as the store just opens up at that time, and Isabelle needs time to set up.
$40 preferably paid via e-transfer prior to class (firstname.lastname@example.org) to secure your spot, and for Isabelle to buy and prepare all materials.
Please email Isabelle prior to paying, to make sure there is room in the class.
No refund but credit for a future class in case of emergency.
Bring canned air for the flower.
Isabelle will also have all kinds of supplies, but you are welcome to bring in your own, especially watercolour paints or pencils as well as liquid pearls if you have any.
Bring your lunch and come ready to have some fun!
