Stencils and Mixed Media
I'm preparing for my home studio "Painting Birds" workshop, and wanted the last day's lesson to be a very easy one. So, I decided to emphasize stencils and show them how to do a very easy illusionary painting. BTW, I only used 2 colors in this painting. (quinacridone gold and neutral tint) I will be having a mail order lesson on this process available soon, if you are interested. It's a fun way to paint!
