|Adding shading and finished pear|
Join us for our next member meeting (the public is welcome, too!) at the Concord Library on Tuesday, October 11th from 1-3pm. Our guest artist is our CAA president, Lisa Fulmer.
Lisa will lead a hands-on demo for everyone to try - using Inktense watercolor pencils on raw canvas fabric. You'll be drawing a pear and blending shades of yellow, orange and green together with water to create interest and dimension. You'll get to bring home your canvas work of art - come play with us!
|Start with sketching and wet brushing|
The benefit of working on raw canvas is that it's textural and absorbent, plus you have so many options for what to do with your finished work. Mount it to a board, embroider on it, stitch it into a soft book or a pillow, collage it onto a canvas, use it in an art quilt or on a tote bag, or just place it under glass in a frame as is.
Below are a couple examples Lisa created for a manufacturer of embroidered iron-on letters - imagine illustrating your own soft canvas book for a special child, friend or family member!
Visit Lisa's blog to see more of her art and craft - we look forward to seeing you at the meeting. Bring along a couple flat brushes, a small and a medium size. Pencils, water cups and canvas fabric will be provided.
