While in Oregon a few days ago, I taught three workshops. Two are annual favorites, Fall Leaves & Christmas Gifts & one was a newer, soon-to-be-favorite, the Water Soluble Pen with Watercolor workshop!
First up, on October 20th in Woodburn, we had fun with the water soluble pens & pencils to create one of three pictures I provided for the artists. Most of these artists had already taken my “Pen with Watercolor” workshop in the past, so this was an all new adventure for them!
Here are two student examples with the original photos:
Then, on the 21st in Tualatin, we enjoyed the annual Christmas Gifts workshop, where we made bookmarks, paper weights, gift tags and other small, fun gifts for Christmas. What a fun way to get ahead on your Christmas gift list & have fun doing art, all at the same time!
The next day in Tualatin, on the 22nd, we went in reverse a little bit and did the annual Fall Leaves workshop. This particular one was the mixed media with gold leaf, attached to a cradled wood board.
