This class is designed to stimulate your color senses and imagination. It will develop your skills in a new way adding to the depth of your artistic ability.
Alcohol inks work differently than watercolor or acrylic paints on yupo paper. The ink colors are more vibrant and create effects that you cannot duplicate with other mediums. The class will allow freedom in thought and creation of your work. No two paintings will ever be the same. It does not matter what your background in art is or how many years you have painted or been away from painting. This class is for all with a desire to learn, have fun and be successful on day one.
You will learn how to apply the inks. to move the colors and blend them with different mediums (blender and alcohol). You will have hands-on practice working with light and dark colors to create depth and interest in your work. You will learn how to create movement, borders and different styles for each subject. You are only limited by your imagination. You will have your choice of subjects to paint.
Demonstrations will be done throughout the class for a clearer understanding of each section taught. The class will give you a firm understanding of how to use alcohol inks and be successful in creating your paintings. The Level I class will focus on how the inks work on yupo paper, color, (high key vs. low key color) movement and design as well as good composition. We will complete 2/3 small paintings during the class at a minimum. My goal will be for you to complete an 11×14 size picture on the first day.
Bring a smile and prepare to be delighted with your own creations of vibrant color pictures using alcohol inks.
