Hello my wonderful creatives!

A+l'atelier+2.jpg

Townscapes have always fascinated me, to imagine the people who live there now and before and it has also been the subject that I have been painting for the longest. Over the years, as I have changed, so have my town… and looking at them feels a bit like reading in a private journal.

Even though the class is called Happy Town, we will not miss the opportunity to add some fun people as well!

I am excited to share my process with you, since I love the freedom mixed media offers me. Painting, printing, adding collage, working with a palette knife and using oil pastel, it is so much fun!

This class is for ALL levels! I hope you join us to create your happy town with your kind of people!

xo,

Yvonne

Here's a description of each of our special projects:

Lesson 1 - PREPARING OUR TWO PROJECTS

We will venture outside to sketch what is around us AND we will use reference pictures and sketch in our studios too! This will bring us so much inspiration and information to use in our upcoming paintings!

I'll also show you how to simplify and stylize both people and buildings! You are going to love creating quirky characters and whimsical structures!

Then we will create our very own beautiful and unique collage papers that we will use in our paintings! So much fun!!

Lesson 2 - OUR HAPPY TOWN / WITH REFERENCE PICTURES

In this project, we will work from our sketches in Lesson 1 and now integrate collage paper, acrylic paints and MORE to create our first whimsical townscape! Get ready to play with color, pattern and texture!

Plus, I'll show you how I love to use my palette knife and oil pastels too!

lesson 3 - OUR HAPPY ISLAND /USING OUR IMAGINATION

In this painting, you can really let your imagination go wild! A magical island with a theme - full of flowers, funny people, quirky buildings...what will you come up with?

We will draw from the experience and techniques in our first project and have now the confidence to apply it! This will truly let our imaginations take flight! I can't wait to see your Happy Island!

 

Bonus lesson - MAKE YOUR own HOME MADE STAMPS

As our BONUS, I'll show you how to make gorgeous, unique, homemade stamps! We will be using these to create our fabulous collage papers too!

I think it brings that extra personal touch to your paintings! It's super easy and fun! You are going to adore creating your very own personalized stamps!

You will reach for them again and again!
