This might be of interest…
This is what one would call cells. They have a kind of interesting shapes, colors, and movement to them. I never know if this will be something I’ll ever use, but should I ever think I need something different, maybe this will be just exactly the ticket!
I’ve only seen one demo by Chris Cozen, but when I did my inner child had a very good time. Chris is a mixed media artist living in Southern California. She is fun to watch, and will get you thinking you need “more paints,” “more supplies!”
I kid you not, your inner child will squeal with joy!
Last week a blogged about Millie Gift Smith’s watercolor landscape. Today I’m playing the Second Part to the video.
You know I love to create in different ways, and I’m always up for a challenge. When I ran into this video, I thought it might be an interesting project in the near future. A friend of mine has been telling me about bleach pen art, and how she’d like to play around with the idea. I think it might be fun to try…….what about you?
I am amazed that the love of painting clearly is a driver in Millie’s life. I’ve grown to love her zest in life, the drive to still do videos, and the knowledge and confidence she shares with us as viewers. I’ve always believed that there is at least one thing you can learn by being in a class, or watching a video such as this one.
Today I’m showing “Millie Gift Smith‘s,” Part 1 – Michigan Landscape in Watercolor. In my view, watching this video gives me more self-confidence. Being perfect is a cruel allusion someone has dreamed up to make us feel less that we are! It took me a while, but I finally learned (in my opinion), perfect is for cameras, interesting, clever, and creative is for artists!
Watch how Millie teaches us to easily paint with watercolors. You don’t need to know everything, just where to get the information you need. I’d say this video is a good way to start using watercolors.
