The final two are my favorites. A door and a window. Metaphors. They have a mood, I think, and I feel that after trying the various approaches, restraint was in order and worked pretty well for these small pieces. Again, restraint with the pigments and simplicity, plus working fast and not overthinking things worked out for the best.
We also made a piece of handmade paper and used the wax medium and heat on it with the most incredible results! This technique alone was worth the cost of the class! The result is the beauty of handmade paper but with the elegance of a fine leather or textile which will be perfect for collages, book pages and cards.
It's hard to believe this was the first class I have taken at the Canvas. I had a great time and hope to spend more time in the studio there. They do great work there and I appreciate their presence in my community.
