I will share 21 Secrets with you - no not 21 pieces of personal info - just a wonderful online creative experience I am taking right now. 21 artists are teaching classes by video and we have 9 months to take any and/or all the classes. The first piece is from Dina Wakley's Intuitive Painted Layers class. The first layer (on top of white gesso)consists of pencil marks made with a water soluble pencil. I used my Inktense black. Paint the shapes and backgrounds using around 6 colors - dark and light of the same color. Then try to find a picture in what you have. A lot of the background is then painted over. This was a lot of fun and very stress free. I really love the texture in the background. The second piece is from Jane Davenport's (http://www.janedavenport.com/) drawing class Frolicaholic. Check out the website if you are interested (http://21secrets2012.ning.com/main). I definitely need some structure to get me going. Live classes are wonderful but usually expensive and time consuming. I definitely appreciate online classes that you can do in your pjs whenever you have time. Thanks so much for stopping by - and check out the 21 Secrets website!
