About This Class

3b13b806

This class will teach a fun and easy painting technique that creates bold artwork looking rather like a woodcut but without any carving. I'll explain just what you need to get started, demonstrate each step of the process and show some of my own paintings done this way.

A great walkthrough of a really interesting technique!

I really like the way this technique turned out. And Alisons teaching was very clear and concise and it was easy to follow along!
Absolutely love this technique. You get a big surprise when ink is washed off. Loose, fun art and we all probably need to loosen up a bit. Few supplies needed and inexpensive. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Artist and Illustrator

I've worked as an artist and illustrator for many years although my academic training was in history and art history. I've illustrated over a 100 books, mostly how-tos on crafts and gardening. I also love to paint in watercolor and create collages as well as making papier mache birds, painting rocks, and creating paper jewelry. You can see some of my work at my Etsy store, Alisonsart as well as my website alisonkolesar.com.
