It's a long weekend for me : Wellington Anniversary weekend with Monday off. I'll share how I'm spending it later. I won't be posting my own art until I'm back, so thought I would share some recent discoveries that are not so much new techniques but reminders of cool things you can do. Hope they inspire you in your art.
After watching this colour mixing video from Joggles, I'm thinking I may need some more, but of course I have other metallic paints that I'm sure I could use try these techniques.
A cute technique that I must try again from Stencil Girl Mary Beth Shaw
: use stencils as rubbing plates underneath magazine pages
- instructions HERE.
And if you're interested in painting faces with acrylics, there's a really cool guide to mixing skin tones HERE - includes a link to a FREE class about it on Craftsy.
And I didn't know that Craftsy has an Art blog with painting and drawing tips
I love Geninne Zlatkis' work. See my review of her stamp carving book HERE. Every month she posts a piece of art that you can use for a calendar on your computer desktop. Go HERE for her blog.
Strathmore have also released their list of free online workshops available for 2017. Beginning in March, click on the photo below to see it larger and find out more details HERE.
I've added these workshops to my list of cheap and free online classes which you can always find top right beneath my profile.
Hope you have a lovely weekend. Talk to you when I get back.
