Silvia Williams Workshop
Last weekend I was happy to be one of six artists participating in an experimental mixed media workshop taught by Silvia in her bright well equipped mountain top studio. As a realist painter, I can’t tell you how delightful it was to be pouring paints and ink through coffee filters, gauze, cheesecloth, etc. onto various supports from watercolor paper, foam core, mat board and even my choice - primed unstretched canvas, to watch the magic happen! Various collage materials were used - cheesecloth, plastic screen, tissue paper, etc. Silvia was amazing as she worked on at least a dozen designs while we watched in total awe before giving it a go! I am somewhat reluctant to post my efforts since it’s obvious they are a bit color-wild and somewhat lacking in design. Just fun, fun, fun!
Thanks Silvia! You make it look so easy! Will see what I can do with these “starts” and post them later.
