Yesterday afternoon during the post-lunch-pre-dinner lull, we took over one of the rooms at Eight4Nine in Palm Springs and held a watercolor collage workshop. (The other half of the ‘we’ is Rick of Incredible Art Center.) A couple of attendees didn’t show which made it a class of five, three of whom weren’t sure about their creativity levels. We fixed that! Here are some of the results.
Just about every time I do a watercolor collage workshop, someone (usually someone who thought they weren’t terribly creative) does something that no one else has done before. This time it was Jim who wanted a cow as an item on his collage. He like to cook and is collecting food or food-source related art for his kitchen. After creating his background, he wanted to put a cow-head shaped foreground piece and needed help drawing a cow. I’ve actually never drawn one, but after a couple tries came up with an outline that he was happy with. Additionally, he painted the face and shadow items on with watercolor after. All the students were so engrossed in what they were doing, we delayed the delicious appetizers until the end of the class.
