Lisa Kaus Collage Classes Day 2

Day two with Lisa we focused mainly on painting and shading. It was very hard for me to create something on such a big scale. With day 1 gridlock project, I felt like the painting was small and not so out there...You could kind of hide behind it, but this one there was no hiding! I chose to paint a scared heart. Why do I love scared hearts? I have no idea, I am so not the religious type, I just love a flaming heart! Anyway, here are the pics from the event. I took a lot away from these classes, the exposure to watercolor crayons and graphite pencil. The use of beeswax, and just some general composition ideas. I have already started creating a series of spooky houses using some of the techniques... but it's a wee bit early for halloween so I will share those later! As I am writing this I just got back from another "outside the box" class with Pam Garrison now I am really inspired! (stay tuned for blog post about Pams class)
