A little while ago I started teaching a regular art journaling class at Art from the Heart (Harrogate, UK) and to be perfectly honest I have been overwhelmed by the response. Already it is starting to feel like a regulars class and we are building on skills learned in previous workshops. It is such a warm, friendly and creative group ... and they are pushing me in different directions too as they make suggestions for future classes or techniques they would like to learn. This time there was a request for quirky birds so as you can see we made owls! I always like to start simple as I think you can then take things further and more complicated as you go along. This owl was created by drawing round a gesso pot to make a circle. Simple! Try it!
Yesterday the temperature was unusually hot hot hot for the UK and the room got hotter and hotter as the afternoon wore on, but it didn't dampen our enthusiasm, although we did drink an awful lot of tea. Hardcore!
The amazing results.
