Pouring and Prepping Paint for Next Weekend
I'll be honest, while I LOVE my job, I HATE pouring paint. Especially when it's warm. I spent the morning pouring acrylic paint into squeeze bottles (wide mouth bottles work best! I get mine from Nova Color.) I have a whole post here on acrylic paints, mediums and lots of tips and tricks for using acrylics in your work.
We won't just be using acrylic paint in my Compendium of Visual Delights class but gouache and watercolor as well (anddd a few other things...) Luckily, the only prep work involved in that department is buying it! I finished the journal last night and I am bouncing off the walls waiting to teach it.
This will be my ONLY paint/collage class for awhile. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I do not have ANY plans to teach painting with collage in any other class at the moment. I am NOT teaching it online either. Just a heads up if you're on the fence about taking it!
Speaking of classes, catch my JOURNAL THIS! class on Saturday (May 26th) at Zinnia in South Pasadena. Think collage techniques plus lots of journal prompts! It's one of my most favorite classes.
