This is my final adult hand coloring class being

held at Kingdom Inspiration Studio in 

Fredericksburg, VA  

This workshop will explore the use of pastels to create a turn of the century look.  Adding that chalk texture to your print turns your image into a mixed media piece of art.  You will learn the various ways to apply the pastels on hot and cold press art papers.  You will practice on images printed for hand coloring, while learning techniques on layering pastels and blending color.  It is a relaxing method which allows you to experience the joy of coloring.

  We will work together in the garden setting while I demonstrate  use of angles and cropping before setting out to discover the “structure bones” that will be the focus of your images.  I will demonstrate use of flash out in the garden as well as the use of reflectors to control light.  On the second day, after review of images, I will demonstrate enhancement software that I use in some of my work as well as specialty printing and some mixed media options.

Creating your image is the beginning:  Printing is the completion.

In this one day workshop, you will learn to match your image to the best substrate to complete your vision. This is an opportunity to print some of your favorites while testing various inkjet papers to see how they affect the look and feel of your image.  This is your chance to find a favorite substrate for your series of images and avoid expensive paper mistakes.
