I have been catching up on the Donna Downey Canvas Create Class http://www.donnadowney.com/shop I am taking on-line. Really been fun! I am not a painter so it has been out of my box to paint on canvases. We have finger painted, done mixed media, watercolored and did some great background techniques under our paintings. I have learned a lot!
This is a mixed media canvas I did using modeling paste with a wood grain stencil. Really cool.
This canvas has tissue tape all over the background then absorbent ground was painted on top. Then I drew in the poppies and watercolored them. I really LOVE this one!
This canvas was finger painted. The whole thing! Using Golden fluid acrylics on a black canvas. I very seldom deviate from Donna's projects. I love the colors she puts together to use (always colbalt teal in there) and just makes the paintings easy for me. Well I must say some are harder than others but she really knows what she is doing when it comes to painting. I love her boldness and her not afraid to try new things. If you don't like it, it can always be painted over!
I will be teaching my annual Holiday Card Class at Stamp Asylum on Saturday, October 6th from 3:00pm - 5:30pm. Cost for the class is $55.00 and everything is included. You do not need to even bring your tool kit. I provide all that stuff too! This is just one of the six cards you will make in the class. This year I am including Halloween cards. So you will make two Halloween, two Thanksgiving/Fall cards and two Christmas ones. Come have some fun that Saturday afternoon. Call the store to sign up at 972 596-1224.
