– PERMISSION TO PLAY CHALLENGE –

HALLOWEEN HOUSE

Come explore a moody Halloween house using ink & watercolor

Here’s what we’ll go through together:

Day 1: Supplies & Swatching

We will review suggested supplies and swatch values in preparation of our monochromatic painting

Day 2: Sketch

Sketch the foundation for your ink lines using a pencil. It’s a great way to make decisions on what you’ll be inking and what you won’t be inking.

Day 3: Inking

Ink your lines with a waterproof pen. This is your chance to add details that you wouldn’t otherwise add with paint.

Day 4: Wash With Watercolor

We’ll finish our ink drawings with watercolors. Allowing the paint to compliment our ink lines and have fun letting loose!

Live call details will be provided to workshop participants via email.

Hi, I’m Susan!

I discovered watercolors during a particularly challenging time in my life. While recovering from a bad flare of my chronic kidney disease, I was looking for something to distract me from stress and anxiety. I stumbled on some old watercolor supplies and quickly realized that it had been over 10 years since I made any kind of art.

And as it turns out, creating again was so healing. When I was painting I forgot all about the other things I was dealing with at the time.

I’m here to help you get inspired, encourage your artistic side.

I love this particular approach to painting with watercolors – it’s such a fun and easy way to create….so come along and let’s paint together!
