A COLORFUL White Seagull

How do you paint a white object on white paper and make it stand out? How do you create grays that are lively and fun to look at? How do you create feather texture without painting every feather the bird has on its body? How do you take a humorous opportunity and magnify the funny?!

Together, we'll explore what white really is (and more importantly, what it is NOT) and I'm pretty sure we'll be using every color in the paintbox except gray and black! Using broken color washes and a whole lot of color, we get to create this curious seagull. I hope you'll  join me at Keeton's to learn how to capture a COLORFUL White Seagull in your sketchbook!

Below is a peek at some of the fun we had during our last class creating Another Day In Paradise:

We will continue to work together to create a series of postcards of colorful sketches that can shared with friends and family, near and far. 

This class is open to all levels and will quickly introduce various approaches to sketching and art journaling. Basic drawing skills, laying out a page or postcard, learning to observe,  adding interest with borders, background color blocks and such will also be briefly covered. 

Weather permitting, our time will mostly be spent working out in the gardens enjoying the sunshine with a brief beginning and closing session in the classroom.

The recommended supply list can be found here.

Past Classes:
Saturday, September 24th: So many gorgeous seashells!
It always amazes me to see all the different interpretations of an page you get when everyone starts off from the same starting place. Color and pattern choices along with varying page sizes gave everyone's final page a very unique look but all were filled with fabulous seashells! If you can, please come and join us next time!

Saturday, July 23rd: You should have joined us for Ice Cream and Stencils!
Oh, wow, what a fun class! Here are three of the ladies from class and their sketchbooks. It was fun to see what everyone came up with and no two turned out the same. I hope you can come and join us next time.
