Doodles Unleashed Wk 1
Traci Bautista over at Strathmore Artists is holding a FREE workshop called Doodles Unleashed over the next four weeks. Well as it was free I just had to sign up for it, didn't I? I have just managed to finish week 1 project in time for week 2 going up tomorrow.
This is my first attempt at this sort of mixed media style and while I found it fun, I think I did find it a bit difficult to just 'let go' and probably tried to follow the video a bit too closely. I think I shall probably try another one and see what happens.
First I used some glimmer mists over various things for stencils and then added lots of acrylic paints, a bit of a colour wash, then some layers of oil pastels, some ink and then used some markers. Not sure if it is too busy or not.
