WHAT TO DO
Prepare your creative space and collect all class supplies and materials.
Take a look at the supply list in the class reference documents and gather your tools.
Choose your natural materials: collect branches, leaves, flowers, pine cones, grasses, pebbles, anything you might find visually interesting. You can also use silk flowers, shells, stones, fake birds, butterflies and vines purchased at a craft store or a dollar store.
Chose a canvas to fit your arrangement.
Arrange your composition. Try several different versions to find the one you like. You can use a camera and take pictures of different versions for later reference. Once you settle on one, reference your photo and start creating the underpainting.
Use acrylics to place your color spots. Use damp sponges to create color washes and textures and let it dry.
Put your composition back onto your canvas and spray paint it with white spray paint. Let it dry.
Once dry, remove your natural materials. Highlight, darken, add color and define as you please.
Your dreamscape is finished!
Don't forget to sign and publish in the class project area of this class.
I look forward to seeing your painting in progress and your finished piece!
