In two days my Watercolor Pencil Workshop through www.joggles.com begins. I'm am wildly excited about this class as it's been a joy to prepare. I get asked so many questions about how to use these little sticks of beauty. They are hugely underestimated, and as anyone who has ever picked up a watercolor pencil will know, they are inexpensive, no-mess, easily portable, come in a huge array of colors and are PERFECT for art journals and sketchbooks on the go. Yet still, understanding how to get the best from them is elusive to so many people.
This autumn leaf was done using several different techniques, which I will show you as we will work through lots of step-by-step exercises. You will learn how to get the best from your own watercolor pencils.
I use watercolor pencils a lot and they are especially perfect for travel. In fact, I'll be packing a little set into my carry-on luggage next week as my husband, children, and I take a little trip down-under to visit my family.
Yep...after months of home-sickness, we're finally heading south for a dose of Aussie...everything. Yep, Australia, the land of gum leaves, Vegemite, surf, and the endless summer. Of course, it's artistic business as usual for me as I'll be blogging about my adventure and deeply engaged in my Watercolor Pencil Workshop. In fact, participants of this class will get to hear about some of my Aussie fun first hand.
I hope to visit many of my beautiful art and play friends while I'm there, so let me know what you've got going on and I'll try to drop by. In the meantime, it's not too late to sign up for Watercolor Pencil Workshop.
Thanks for stopping by xx
