Altered Book – Colour
Work along with Linda to make an altered book with a colour theme. Linda uses red but you can choose any colour to work with! See how she creates pages, applies colour theory, makes use of photographs, colour pencils, pastels and paint. There are four video workshops in this collection.
Watercolour Tips – Lifting Out
Join Linda to paint a leaf in watercolour and discover how she creates organic, special effects and finally lifts out fine details. Linda’s leaf shows the first signs of autumn colour and decay – she shows exactly how to achieve that appearance with very simple techniques.
