Last weekend I attended a three day workshop led by 2014 South Walton Artist of the Year, Mary Hong. After much interest from many of her students once she started teaching glass on canvas classes, Mary decided to teach a 3 day intensive workshop covering everything from planning the art to resin.
The first day of the class covered planning our piece, painting it and adding textures.
After texture was covered, Mary demonstrated how she sets up the backgrounds for many of her canvases. I really liked her technique as it uses more white and less color than I previously used. It was also super fast! I covered my 30×40 canvas in half the time it would normally take me to paint a 20×20.
