I've started the class and it's so fun!
We started out learning alot about the twinks and made some mandalas. The last one I made I chose to use simple and few shapes. The mix of using twinks and ordinary watercolors is stunning, The mandala below has a background of "flat" colors, while the mandala itself has twinks. I did a proper job while shading and I'm quite pleased with the result. The paper I'm using helps making a great texture. When I study it now, I see I could have done even a little more shading and gained an even better result. That is, if I did shade in the bottom of the spiderwebs, the whole mandala would have been lifted like half a ball.
I love taking this class, and I get so much energy from it. The other students are very supportive and we share alot of work for each other to see.
Dion is a good teacher and she has developed alot of great material to show off and much to read as well. I truly think this will help me develop in my use of the twinks. And it's a joy to start each day doing some homework.
Today I made my very first still life motif. Some fruits on a table. The bowl is as wonky as can be, but I'm quite pleased with my fruits. The banana was just a mess at first, but I was lucky enough to rescue it. Of course I see several "mistakes", but to be my first it's not bad at all. Right now I'm in my second week, and we'll continue for 5 weeks at all. I should have done this a long time ago, but now I'm glad I'm doing it.
I hope you have interesting days as well!
