"Play on Faces"
with Cynthia Anderson
(all photos taken with permission from the artist)
I promised to share with you some of the pictures I took while in Arizona last week attending Art Unraveled. It took place at the Embassy Suites in Phoenix, and offered several classes over a 7 day period. I was not there the entire time, but was able to take several day and evening classes. I will be posting about each of the four mixed media-classes I took over the next few days.
The first class, "Play on Faces," was with mixed-media artist Cynthia Anderson. She was a wonderful instructor who shared with us some simple techniques to draw and paint a face. I wasn't sure I'd be able to do it, but by the end of the day, I had (well, almost) completed the piece you see here. It is the same face that I reduced, enhanced and adhered to a pocket watch for the Mixed Media Monday challenge that I posted earlier.
Below you will find a few pictures from the day . . .

Final results for the day
I actually finished the painting today, and will post the final results soon. On to day two, "Textures.Layers.Collage" with Traci Bautista tomorrow . . .
