Unearthing Imaginary Characters
June 30, 2018
In this workshop, we will explore what I call my "magical painting" process in our journals. We will use some fun materials to create a mixed media background full of line, shapes, collage and marks. I will show you ways to use this background to "unearth" your characters. We will create unique faces using simple tools, both on and off your journal pages and experiment with mediums to enhance the effects of our simple supplies. Most importantly we will focus on ways to make these characters your own. The result will be a journal spread of whimsical, unique characters.

artists that take our breath away understand the play of light and dark. The range of light to dark in a painting, the
"values," draw us to our focal point and create the illusion of
depth. Let's explore what magic we can conjure with basic black, white and
shades of grey, using winged fairies as our inspiration. We will use our basic black palette and a
variety of mixed media tools, exercises and yes, draw faces while creating an
11" x 14" painting. I will have some face tools and techniques
available for beginners, so no fear!
