Description

classroom is open!

This is an online self-study single lesson that was filmed at my studio worktable.

I have created these short mini classes as part of the “in my studio” series.  In them I invite you to follow along with me in a typical session in my day where I create a single artwork.  I use varying techniques and materials.

The cost for this lesson is $16 US.

In this lesson you will be guided through the creation of this girl and the moon imagery.   This piece is a simple mixture of collage, water based markers, inktense blocks (see below for alternatives), watersoluble graphite, and some white soft pastel.  This is a very simple girl to sketch with minimal detail, perfect for beginner and intermediate levels.

You will learn all the techniques for collaging the background, sketching and colouring the face using watersoluble graphite and colouring with waterbased media.

You will receive just over an hour of full-length video that will walk you step-by-step through the process of creating your girl and the moon and ladder.  There is no fast-forward you will watch my entire process in real time.

I have created a small series in this style, which I call my “quirky girls”.  Below are some examples of what you can achieve with this technique.

Who is this lesson for?

This is a beginners to intermediate lesson incorporating basic mixed media techniques and simple sketching.  It is a work at your own pace lesson.  You will gain access to over an hour of video in which I walk you through various mixed media and sketching techniques.  This is an open ended workshop with no expiration date.  All the videos are downloadable and yours to keep.
