So I spent most of the weekend at The Art House in Cambridge Ontario www.thearthousestudio.ca which had classes by visiting artist Donna Downey from Huntersville, North Carolina USA www.donnadowney.com.
I cannot give details of how the techniques are done in respect to the teacher, but if you have a chance to take her class or want to try them on-line I highly recommend them.
I took a class on Friday called PanPastel Painting it was so much fun, however when I brought the pictures home I added crackle paint to part of it to give it more dimension.
Here is a close up of the crackle
On Saturday I took a class called Watercolour Whimsy and I had more fun than the night before. We used these things called Gelatos which look like Lip Balm sticks. I want to try this technique again for sure.
