Today's Studio Workshop Demos

Pencil sketch over collage elements, 11x15 matboard, using torn paperback pages from Winds of War and torn tissue toilet seat covers (they make the best texture for watermedia) from the Red Lobster. Thanks RL! I used matte medium to adhere these then applied gesso at random and let dry.


Finished 1st demo watercolor collage, Pears on Pepper Plate, with ink on AF Crescent matboard demo in about 1.5 hours. This is posted on WetCanvas that you can see here.

Thank you Mollie and Jane. It is too much fun. The tissue is not toilet paper as such, it is the slick pressed cover that goes over the seat itself; has perforations that break as you sit and contemplate your next painting, LOL!
