This workshop is sponsored by the Heritage Fine Arts Guild (HFAG) , www.heritage-guild.com
In this workshop we will explore different ways to create tree forms in mixed media. Emphasis will be on contemporary styling with unusual textures to create stunning landscapes. Students will create two or more mixed media tree paintings.
Students will explore the color green. Using only the primary colors red, yellow, and blue, plus black and white, students will make color grids to mix 96 shades of green. No green from a tube allowed!
Students will also learn an easy method to create their own leaf-shaped stamps using fun foam and foam core.
Golden Fluid Acrylic paints - my favorite colors are on my website (carolnelsonfineart.com)
Tube acrylics are OK, but not preferred.
Supports - two 12x6 MDF panels
Stretched canvas or canvas board also OK, but not preferred.
One sheet wc paper about 12x15 - may use the back of an unsuccessful wc painting, if you have any.
1 inch flat brush suitable for wc or acrylics - NOT a bristle brush - this is what I use 80% of the time when working this size.
Small detail brush
Small (1 inch) palette knife
Gloss Medium - matte OK, but not preferred. I use Gloss Medium & Varnish by Liquitex
Gel Medium - I use regular gel medium (gloss) by Golden
Gesso - small amount to cover the MDF panels
Spray bottle of water. The best spray bottles are old hair spray bottles - better than trigger spray bottles.
Spray bottle of alcohol.
Roll of blue painter's tape.
Black sharpie or India ink felt tip pen
12 inch ruler
The usual stuff: water container, palette, hair dryer, scissors
