Creating this first workshop was such a magical experience! I am eager to share my amazing journey with you on how I discovered this rewarding method of painting – ultimately by trusting my intuition and imagination!
I have always been a nature lover and adore animals. I had longed to put my visions and dreams onto canvas but until a few years ago, I had no idea how to go about it!
Through self-discovery, hardships and lots of practice, I have found the key methods to unlock this mystery! To reveal on canvas, what we can’t express in words – is a true joy and allows us to tell our own story and share our hearts.
We will be covering several topics and techniques such as:
- Expressive, intuitive painting
- Telling your story using imagery and symbols
- Finding inspiration
- Connecting with nature and how to use it in your art
- Creating storytelling paintings and interest for the viewer to interpret
- Creating portraits with both watercolor and mixed media techniques
- Using line work to create interest and variation
- Creating glazes and layering with watercolors on various substrates
- Creating contrast with lights and darks
- Creating something that is unique and special to you and your journey
- And much more….
I can’t wait to be your guide and I do hope you will follow me “Into the Myst” on your own journey of creative self-discovery, finding your voice and celebrating the magic you have within!
