Saturday's Class and A Festive, New Header!

6:37 AM

Come and join me on Saturday, December 12th, from nine until noon, as we catch a little "Wave Action" in our sketchbooks!

I don't know about you, but I'm ready to take a break from all the decorating and shopping and head over to the beach.

The class will be held at Keeton's in Bradenton and you can find more info here.  We'll be working from photos and with regular watercolor brushes rather than waterbrushes.

Waves seem like a challenge until you break them down into shapes. Adding the foam and white spray at towards the end of the page are what makes the whole sketch sing!

I hope you can make it!

How do you like the new header?! I wanted something a little more mellow for the season and so I landed on the combination of muted green, blue and purple. 

It was a lot of fun to fill my sketchbook pages with these small vignettes. They started off a little looser than they finished up, but then, I guess I could say that just about every time I paint!

After finishing the pages, I scanned the work and imported it to Photoshop to build the banner. I enjoyed manipulating and arranging the images until I had a design I liked. (I can tell you this was a whole lot easier than decorating my house!)

The other fun thing is that I can take the pieces and print them out to make card tags for any gifts we're giving this year.
From my "Pineapple Journal" I made myself with Canson watercolor paper.
