Saturday, September 24, 6:30–9pm, artEAST, Issaquah, WA
Join me for a fun evening learning the basics of digital drawing on the iPad in a relaxed environment. Bring a friend and spend the evening learning how fun and easy it is to create and manipulate art digitally. We will have refreshments and lots to talk about.
This class is designed for beginners and traditional artists looking to expand their abilities while still having fun. I will share work by other artists, demonstrate how to use this tool for preliminary sketches and changes to help your traditional art become even better, create with layers, show how to manipulate your painting into an entirely different piece of art using digital draw overs, replay some of my sketches from start to finish to show you the process, show you the difference between several apps, and finally we will draw on the "Brushes Redux" or "Brushes XP" app.
The sun is shining and there is hope that spring is right around the corner. My solo show is fast approaching too! The opening is set for March 17 6-8 pm at Blakely Hall in the Highlands, Issaquah, WA. I would love to see you there. It will run until April 24 and then part of it will be in the front window of artEAST for the following month. I have painted the past 10 months and there will be about 12 new pieces plus some of my favorites from my own collection.
These three paintings will be there along with others which I will feature next newsletter. Birds of a Feather is the newest and is 2'x4'. It features lots of paint layers as well as a Shoe-billed stork which happens to be my favorite bird (after crows of course) and a ghost fish too.
Acme #2000 art pouch-for the artist on the go-with optional nest pocket (model not included)is the next closeup. This one makes me laugh and can happily live in my studio. I would love to carry my art supplies wherever I go...along with a couple of crows ;) There is an optional nest pouch featured and many more art filled pouches not shown in this view. You have to see it all!
And finally we have Babelwhich is raw canvas covered in collage, stitching, buttons, vintage papers, stamps, and glitter. Can you tell I teach elementary students? One can never have too much glitter.
