The work is done with permanent markers, watercolors, acrylic paints, bling, and coming up, gel medium, gesso, modeling paste and tissue paper and canvas. Wow, my head is spinning when I list all of that.
I am hoping to take a live class from Joanne at the end of June when she is going to be a guest of Donna Downey in North Carolina. Both ladies are fast paced teachers who use vibrant colors and spontaneous writing to create their art. I am excited.
Enjoy the photos-
Cover, done in a 9 x 12' watercolor journal. Pitt Pens and watercolor paint. Alphabet soup.
Lesson 2- Lots of fun fonts and watercolors on wiggly lines.
Lesson 5- Word Play Collage. The letters had to touch in some fashion and we had to change the angle of the page after each set.
Lesson 7- The Good Negative. Painted big blotch. Used one word then added sayings or words to describe and highlight what you meant by your word. In case you can't tell, I used Change- my word for the year, Create and Time- all which mean a lot to me right now. The white letters are created with a white Signo pen.
Believe it or not, these words are clustered into an S shape around my cat picture. Words can flow throughout your art, not just get tucked in a corner or written across a straight line.
Lesson 11- Brush and Letters. Not liking this one so much.Using a paint brush to create your lettering. You know I want it all to turn out perfectly..... Not so much.
Lesson 14- Lettered Love. This was created on Valentine's Day. Integrate hearts into our lettering. Joanne, our teacher, is a big user of hearts in her art. This was fun.
I have many more lessons to complete and a few I don't think I'll do, but on a whole I think this was an excellent class helping me find more of what I like to do and develop a style.
I'll post more as I finish them.
Thanks for stopping by.
