Check out my next workshop


3 DAYS, 3 WAYS TO DO CONTEMPORARY FIGURE PAINTING Liz Hill, lizhill4u@aol.com , 713-252-7726. Friday-Sunday Sept 16, 17, 18; 10:00- 4:30pm $150 Join a fun filled 3-day workshop with Liz Hill, award winning mixed media artist. Each day you will have a model in the morning, lunch, followed by the method of painting you are working on that day. You should have a finished piece at the end of each day. There will be critiques first thing the next morning. Questions? Contact Liz at Lizhill4u@aol.com or call 713-252-7726 Supply List: PAINT- any Watermedia you generally use. I prefer watercolor along with opaque paint, but acrylics painters bring either. PAPER- you will need lots of inexpensive drawing paper for the mornings. You will also need 3 sheets (22x30”) hot press 140# paper. We will tear it in half and use half two pieces each day. (Do not try these techniques on cold press paper.) I use Fabriano traditional white & will bring some with me for sale at $5 a sheet. DRAWING- pens, pencils, inks, colored pencils, watercolor crayons. Bring any or all of these. I use a lot of the colored pencils and crayons. COLLAGE- bring any papers you have, from prepared collage papers to magazine prints, old letter, sheet music. I do mean anything! The more varied the more interesting. MEDIUMS- white gesso, matt medium, black gesso if you choose and any other colored gesso you would like. Any stamps and prints you would like. Come with an experimental mind!
