Hello, my friend! Welcome to class.
In this class, we are going to layer watercolor, texture, and patterns to create these beautiful sampler pieces of art. I love experimenting with color and pattern and know you will love this too. This is such a fun way to experiment with colors and try out different mark-making techniques. I'm calling these samplers since they are reminiscent of vintage needlepoint samplers used to showcase color and needlepoint techniques.
We'll start out in our sketchbooks to get started and create ourselves a small reference library of color and marks. Then we'll move on to small striped samplers in our sketchbooks and finish off with a large sampler piece ready to frame.
This class is for you if:
Supplies: I encourage you to use the supplies you have on hand to do your projects. You do not have to purchase any specific supplies for this class. It is all about experimenting with the supplies you have and learning to let loose.
By the end of this class, you'll be inspired and ready to create some beautiful art of your own.
Your project: Is to get out your watercolors and play! I want you to experiment with colors, water, and mark-making. There is no wrong way to do this project. You cannot make mistakes. I want you to first play with some colors you like, then venture out to some color combos you wouldn't normally gravitate to. Take your time and have fun. I cannot wait to see your samplers - so be sure to come back and share them with me!
