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.

I really loved this class and technique! I had never heard of it before, and am so drawn to the character of the final pieces. Can't wait to try my own soon!

These were very clear instructions and the end result is gorgeous!
I loved watching you do this amazing technique. I would have thought masking fluid would have made it much easier to do but I didn't see you use any. I'm not sure I'm a neat enough painter to try it without but I will. I havn't ever used gouache properly so it will be fun trying. i need to draw a proper picture and give it a try. Thanks so much for a great idea and a beautiful example. I am fascinated now.

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.
