Using a Bullseye Technique for Your Watercolor Underpainting with Molly Murrah
Saturday, July 27, 2013
11:00  and  1:30 - FREE demos!
 
 
When you want an area of your painting to really glow and capture the viewer's gaze, use a bullseye technique in your underpainting. It's fun, easy to do, and when done with transparent paints, you will get the effect you are looking for. Once the bullseye underpainting is completely dry, you can paint and glaze the other elements in your painting as you normally would. Bullseye underpaintings can be executed subtly or dramatically – it all depends on what you are looking for!

Join us and see for yourself how this exciting, fun process can enhance the luminous quality of your masterpiece!

MONOTYPE: Gelatin Printmaking using Acrylics with April Richardson
Saturday, July 13th 2013 - FREE demos!
at 11 am & 1:30 pm


No press required, this is a loose and playful approach to printmaking that you can do on your kitchen table. Experiment with textures and layers or flat objects like coins, buttons, stencils and pressed flowers to invent beautiful designs. Roll with a brayer or paint directly on the gelatin plate with a brush and acrylics to create a series of painterly prints.

Come and discover for yourself (bring along a friend too!) how to loosen up and get your creative juices flowing with this easy form of printing!
