My latest class, one which I'm enjoying immensely, is Jane Davenport's Supplies Me Workshop. As Jane says,
It’s for anyone who has bought lovely
art supplies and hardly used them.
It’s for anyone who loves drawing
pretty faces ( or wants to learn how!).
It’s for anyone who needs a break
from the craziness of the world.
In other words, it's perfect for me! (Who hasn't bought art supplies, brought them home, and then never used them because we weren't quite sure what to *do* with them?)
Anyway, here are my homework assignments from the first week. We were striving for a great deal of texture underneath a layer of gesso, then creating on top of that. One thing I learned from the lesson: art pens do not work well on texture. Too bumpy! I stuck to pencils after that.
