Mixed media Painting

Layers of Light

Let your light shine through your art

What if you were a light seeker? What if your unique creative spark was just a few brushstrokes away?...

 

A look at the main projects of the class...

Lesson 1: "Soul Board"… a magical portal to awaken your spark, connect to your light and invite inspiration.

Lesson 3: Textured layers just make you want to touch these little encaustic artworks. This lesson is all about texture: gritty, frayed, translucent, soft... magical!

Lesson 5: Create a series of small artworks dedicated to a personal symbol and learn my favorite acrylic technique that recreates the gorgeous waxy look of encaustic!

Lesson 2: Dancing with Light and Shadow... and playing with a whole variety of whites, blacks and neutral tones.

Lesson 4: Wandering on the horizon, feeling the layers of life... Paper, wax, lace, journaling, inks and mismatched buttons create a dreamy and oh-so-yummy landscape.

Lesson 6: This final project is such a meaningful journey… Play with color and white, cover, uncover, paint over a photo, write poetic affirmations and get blissfully messy!
