Writing a letter to inner critic/ painting/ collage techniques.

This is my first class in a series of upcoming shorter project and technique based classes.   In this first installment, I’m re-releasing a lesson taught over on Tamara Laporte’s project,  Lifebook 2012.  “Behind You” is a lesson that you will learn some basic portrait drawing and painting lessons using a take on the Old Masters form of Grisaille painting.    But it’s also more than that…it’s about creating a page that helps to release that inner critic in you. You know that voice… the one that puts obstacles in your way from doing what it is that you want to do. The voice that says you aren’t good enough…it’s there, it’s in all of us.

In this open ended class you will be treated to ongoing access to work at your own speed, anytime of the day or night.   Included in this creative lesson will be a step out direction document and approximately 2 hours of videos content.   Why don’t you join us today for this exciting project!

  • 9 x 12 sheet of Watercolor paper (or larger..whatever you have been using is totally fine)
  • 1 or 2 sheets of light weight drawing paper
  • Graphite pencil (I normally use 2b, 4b and sometimes a stabilo pencil)
  • Kneaded eraser, (blending stump or chamois cloth can be helpful, too)
  • Matte Medium (I’ve been using Pam Carriker’s matte medium from Derwent but any will do)

  • Gesso
  • Paints: white acrylic, black acrylic, titan buff
  • Stamps: Simple shapes, hand carved or hand imprinted is best
  • Papers: a few light weight papers such as tissue, dictionary, book papers; scrap book papers if you like, try one with writing on it
