Amazing Water Quilts

Posted by Linda on 28 March 2017 | 0 Comments


I love making landscapes, especially landscapes that have some form of moving water – waves coming into shore, waterfalls, streams, rapids and ripples. There is an art to making water in motion, and in this class, you will learn many techniques that will give your water scene that realism that makes your scene come alive!

We’ll be making a short scene with ocean, salt spray, and ripples of the sea coming onto a beach that is complete with real sand, rocks, and shells:waves and waterfalls - She Sells Sea Shells by Linda Schmidt

We’ll create ocean waves complete with seafoam and luminescence:waves and waterfalls

We’ll create a small version of Yosemite Falls:Miniature Yosemite Falls

Then I’ll help you turn whatever photo you have into your own Landscape Masterpiece.

Come play with me as I turn painted melted cellophane into tiny bubbles, Angelina fiber into sea mist; Puff Paint, rocks and shells into a sandy beach; and paint, sheers, roving, and Angelina fiber into waterfalls. Your only limit is your own imagination!
