Try Something New No2

Another first for on-line classes. This time with Paulette Insall. This was her organic backgrounds class. I do love my backgrounds I have to admit I do them a lot, but I haven't sanded my backgrounds before, so that was new. So the background although it looks textured, it's quite smooth. cool huh!!

So just to clarify this was a backgrounds class, and you could add what ever you wanted over the top of the background, although she does give some ideas as to what you can do. Anyone thinking about doing an on-line class, I highly recommend her and karyn Gartel.... both really cool and informative teachers.

So this canvas is 8" x 10" and is titled "An Awkward Friend". Still trying to get my faces right and my shading/trees right where I'm happy with the way they look.





So this is my second entry for MMM - Try something new.

  7. This is gorgeous Nat - I love how your art is developing!

    And apologies for not getting back to your email about the retreat. I have been soooo busy this week.
    And only went to 2 days of the retreat so am probably not the best person to ask. I know Jacky went to 4 days. It was a lot of fun and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
