New in the Classrooms
Birds are such an inspiration to us, whether it's big black crows in the fields, or the pretty garden birds that visit the feeders outside the studio. In this collection of workshops Linda will show you her methods for painting birds using acrylics on wooden panel and canvas. Suitable for beginners or the more experienced artist, Linda will guide you through, step by step.
Work along with Linda to make your own visual diary to document your observations and collections. Linda's focussing on one of her favourite subjects, moths, but your diary can document anything you like! In Linda's book you'll see a selection techniques used in combination to record what you find. There are three workshops in this collection.
Paint Pounded Scarf
Create beautiful hand painted cloth with Linda's special fabric painting technique, then selecting from your palette of fabrics make a unique scarf with hand worked, kantha style stitch.
Colour after Quilting
So often we create beautiful fabrics and then think about how to quilt them. In this workshop Laura turns that on its head and adds colour after the quilting is done. Join her to see how you can accentuate the fabulous texture of your stitching with paint.
Learn how to combine hand painting with your quilting (either digitally stitched or free motion) as an exciting way to introduce colour and pattern to your quilts.
Watercolour Flower Painting
Join Linda for a step-by-step demonstration of painting flowers. She'll show you how to control washes of watercolour and build layers to paint your subject. See how an underdrawing is successfully integrated into your painting and how to manage the flow of paint and lift out colour where necessary. Even if you've never painted with watercolour before, Linda will help you achieve great results.
