Life Book Week 7

Hi art friends,

The main lesson for Week 7 was with Wyanne Thompson, who works in giant wax paintings. Very cool, but it is not even remotely practical for me to have a large hot table in my studio. This is one of the few lessons where I watched all the videos because Wyanne’s work is gorgeous and I enjoyed watching the evolution of her piece.

As I watched, I wondered if I could get something similar-ish using my gel plate. My plate is roughly the same size as my Leuchturm journal, so I threw on some acrylic paints and made portraits of my beloved and myself. They are very loose and sketchy, but I like the way they turned out.

Have you watched someone work then figure out how to achieve that technique using the tools and supplies you have on hand?  Leave a comment and tell me about it.

Happy arting!
