Painting and Composition-Mixed Media and Fabric Collage

 

/sites/fracturedangelics.indiemade.com/files/files/Painting1pt2(1)(1).pdfIn this class we will be working on two different paintings; a portrait and a figure focusing on composition. Using wood as a substrate we apply paper collage and fabric and paint with acrylics, gesso, inks and pastels. I also have a video on how I paint my faces using gesso or white acrylic and alcohol inks.

This is a class about process and rather than replicate the paintings, I want you to discover your own unique style using the techniques and information I have supplied in this class.

This is a self-paced class and will be ongoing.
