DON'T SETTLE FOR THE WHITE (MIXED MEDIA and ACRYLIC)
with ALICIA HARVEY
Sunday, May 5, 2018
11:00 am - 12:30 pm
We thrill with the anticipation of a new painting. Then we pull out our paper or canvas and it stares back at us, full of the "WHITE", the cold, blank emptiness that opens the door to self-doubt and reluctance. STOP right there. Reclaim the joy and abandon of making art by shutting down the white.
In this demo, Alicia Harvey reminds or maybe introduces you to the concept of underpainting where all methods are fair game. Alicia will use paint, stamping, stencil, gesso, paper collage, and more, showing you how to create colorful and fun bases for your paintings, mixed media pieces, or journal work. The image contains two underpaintings and one portrait on top of an underpainting.
