I like this saying… probably because I like flowers! And it applies to art too!
In 2013, I started taking online art classes. I had never done it before but I wanted to nurture my creative side. I was working full-time so I didn’t have the time to take a live class or workshop. I’m so glad I took the risk!
I’ve taken MANY classes from Carla Sonheim and have learned so much! The above painting I did on wood with gesso first then watercolors. I never would have thought to try this without her class called, “Flower Crazy.”
I learned other techniques such as this one:
I created texture with gesso and then painted it with watercolor and buffed it with a soft cloth. Very fun!
And I learned more about negative painting in this one:
I painted the wood panel with watercolors first. Then I created my flowers by painting the negative background in gesso.
One of the things I enjoy about taking an online art class is I still get to learn from others! I make new online friends too. 🙂
If you have never taken an online art class, I encourage you to give it a try!
Happy Creating! 🙂
