Walton Watermedia Workshop Experience


Mixed Media by Leada Wood ©

Well hooray! I finally have internet after nearly three weeks! So I thought I would share my painting from the Walton Experience. This one was taken from a photograph that was non representational. I put texture on the paper first and let it dry and then in 20 minutes I laid down a lot of paint so much that Douglas came by and grabbed my spray water bottle and put down about a 1/4 inch of water on top of the paint and told me to leave it alone while he did his demo. When I came back wonderful magic had happened! This is the end result. I guess sometimes I spend way too much time on a painting and work it to death. I enjoyed the workshop so much! It was a wonderful bunch of women and a fantastic time painting! The week passed too quickly as usual but I learned so much in that short time. Douglas is a wonderful instructor and we are so lucky to have him come to Big Spring every year.

Wow Leada it's magic. It has a glow to it. I bet all the time of the demo you were worrying about all that water on your painting? Needs to go on Mixed Media site too.

What me worry!! I knew it would either be magic or collage material!

A really stunning piece, Leada!!! I can just see it with a fuchsia inner mat and a black outer mat and black wide wood frame.

That is really the only way to look at it and not be full of fear as it is just a piece of paper that will either work or end up as fodder for the next one. Or the next one...

Now I know how to frame this one, it will be stunning like that!
Yeah I kinda got over the fear of white paper a long time ago! HA!
