Metals and Mixed Media workshop - Arvada, CO
For two days we assembled our metals, foils, metal leaf, art papers, nails, brads, tyvek, and whatever else we could find on our textured panels. I might have overwhelmed them a bit with all the information on the first day, but by the second day they were pros. Well, maybe not pros yet, but they had a good understanding of the materials and the processes.
This delightful group of artists was eager to learn new techniques and produced some very attractive bozzettos. By the end of the workshop I was losing my voice, but I think everyone went home with several examples of artwork they had never done before. Good times.
My portrait project will resume shortly. I think the break for the workshop, where I worked in a totally different medium and style, was a good one for me. I'm ready to attack the 35 remaining portraits with renewed vigor. Stay tuned.
