I thought it would be fun to take you through this new process. First I start by plastering my board red then I added collage and painting, then I added another color plaster (the creamy yellow) and carved into it, then I embellished the final piece with painting details. As you can see I covered most of the under painting. This piece is bigger than the first two, 20"x 16". I am having fun playing with different elements and experimenting. This piece may stay this way or maybe changed, I have not decided. I will come back to it in a few weeks. I want to move on and try different colors. I am waiting for my pigments to come in the mail, they don't sale them at the art store here. Up to now I have been using acrylics to mix with the plaster, but that is getting costly. The pigments are cheaper and go further.
Thank you everyone for your advice on the classes. I need more help. Do you think it is better to have the classes on the weekend or weekdays? Also should I do 2, 6 hour days or 3, 4 hour days? What would you want in a class?
Thank you for any input on the painting or the classes, I always love hearing your thoughts.
Happy Monday! XOXO
P.S. I have no idea why blogger published this in such a goofy way, with all the huge spaces, I did not do it, blogger seems to have a mind of it's own :-).
*P.S.S Thank you for all the advice. I should have been more clear, the classes will be more like workshops, not on going classes like at school. 12 hours total is about how long I need to get a beginner started.
