Primitive Witch

Primitive Witch is an exploration of what working with watercolor and acrylics looks like. I love the distressed look that you can achieve with using both and how the watercolor sinks down into the crevices of the gesso and paint.

I would love to have you join me celebrate fall and Halloween with these beautiful witchy girls: Lydia, Sally, and Primitive Little Witch. Here is what the thumbnail sketch project looks like:

This class contains almost 3 hours of content and starts September 18th, 2017.
