This whimsical painting starts with a very colorful under painting using acrylics and stencils. Subsequent layers adds color and texture. Shapes are then carved out using gesso. Further embellishment is added with paint, pen and watercolor crayons. The step by step instruction enables beginner and experienced painters to complete a successful painting. Your creativity will guarantee an original piece of art! I anticipate that paintings will be 90% completed in class.

You choose the size of your painting and the topic. We will be creating an underpainting 15" by 30" and then you can choose to finish one large painting or several smaller paintings. I love cats, so I will have samples of that as well as whimsical birds and a giraffe.
