From Wire Drawing to Colored Painting
What an adventure this has been for me. I absolutely LOVE doing wire drawings. And they serve as great value studies so that I can go on to painting colored paintings. "The Highest Power" has been accepted into the Minnesota Watercolor Society Exhibition, which will be featured at the Arboretum, 3675 Arboretum Drive, Chaska, MN 55318. The show runs from April 7th till June 30th. I did this colored version, using acrylics in the same manner as I described in my blog from January 26, 2015. It's so fun to squirt paint on the surface of the paper, and then scrape those colors, using a credit card. I will be teaching this procedure at the White Bear Center for the Arts on August 16-18, 2016. To register, call White Bear Center for the Arts, Center for the Arts • Phone 651.407.0597. It is located at 4971 Long Avenue, White Bear Lake, MN 55110 • Tuition: $360 Member/$450 Non-Member. Hope to see you there! The art center is lovely! One of my favorite places to teach!
