A Blog about Finding Inspiration

"We have a wonderful world to be inspired by and each new day is like an adventure into the unknown, where things that require a second glance can be captured in time on a canvas for anyone to enjoy forever." (Louise Corke)

WACG Beach Wash Workshop 8 '10

The Waccamah Arts and Crafts Guild sponsored a workshop on learning to do beach washes as backgrounds for artwork.
 The workshop leader came prepared with all of the materials we would need to learn the skillset
We all chose a spot on Myrtle Beach to listen to her directions
Then she had an experienced member demonstrate how to get a nice sand wash  resist pattern on the water color paper using the smaller waves at the edge of the tide.
Back on the dry beach we practiced pouring diluted acrylics over the sand wash
Until we were surrounded by a rainbow of brilliantly colored beach washed paper
