Watercolor Fresco Painting

I am almost ready to launch my first online class "Watercolor Fresco Painting at http://thetroddenpath.ning.com/. Here are some of the examples of what you can make in this class. I have always loved watercolors, but in the past 2 years I started painting in acrylics and loved the layering and texturing you could achieve with them. I still loved how watercolor looked with all the beautiful watermarks and how they blended so well. I discovered, by mistake, where alot of magic happens, that I could work with the layering method by using gesso with the watercolors. And to get even more in the texture I could paint on cracked plaster.
For so many years I worked as a fiber artist and loved creating with fabrics and stitching. I discovered two years ago, that I had a passion for painting, and now it is all coming together with painting on the fabrics. I have a collection of vintage linens that work so well into these pieces. It is fun to hunt for new and different painting substrates by digging through vintage linens! I look forward to this new adventure in my life.....teaching!! Come join me!

  1. Kate, found you through Trodden Path; I love your work, I too use collage and drawing is the basis of my paintings... Your colour is fab, and I am completely inspired by your use of joint compound on fabric :-) looking forward to following you here. Thank you for your generous sharing of paintings and process xxx
