NOTE: This lesson is also included in the Mixed Media Magic full eCourse.
In the spring of 2018 I had the pleasure of attending a workshop with Raleigh artist Susan Miller. In this painting class we learned how to create beautiful backgrounds using a plethora of fun supplies and our intuition!! Me being me, of course, couldn't walk out of there without putting a face on all that background beautifulness and the result became the cover of my new book. I was so caught up in the magic of that day and loved my girl so much (even though I didn't realize she'd be gracing the cover!!) I took care to photograph each and every step along the way so that I'd remember the magical journey I took to create her. And here she is :)
Since I had already photographed my process to get there, it was a cinch to incorporate this beloved project into my book!
The only problem was that I needed (wanted, really) to share this same process with my online creative friends as well! So I happily pranced back to my studio, camera rolling this time, to recreate the magic of that day. Here is the result and I can't WAIT for you to paint along with me this time!!!
With this course you'll be receiving 3 full hours of real-time, HD video content that is fully downloadable and 100% awesome.
Don't care to hog up your entire hard drive with videos?? No problem, you have lifetime access to this as well. For your convenience I also provide links to each and every product I use along the way (although this is totally optional, everyone is encouraged to use what they have!).
Can't wait to get started? Neither can I. Let's go!!!
I have been teaching drawing and painting to folks of all ages both in person and on-line since 2011 and have been making art full time since 2004. Art is my therapy, my soul, and my obsession! My teaching goal is to make art approachable, accessible and FUN FUN FUN through my on-line classes and drawing books! I'm sooooooo glad you're here! Please let me know if you have any questions, I'm here to help to you on your creative journey, regardless of what stage your in :)
