After I quick intro by Jenny Doh, Chris was off and demoing and playing with paint, glazes, pastes ans so much more ... my head was spinning right from the start!
Chris gave us a quick overview of how Golden paints came to be and how the quality and the care behind the products can truly be felt in every tube of paint they produce. She explained the difference between pigments that are mined from the earth and then talked about the colors that are developed in the lab ... I was amazed and loved hearing all this information. It all made so much sense and now I understand why some colors sort of glow and why some are flat.
Golden provided a ton of paint samples and well as already prepared boards with their Fiber Paste and different Molding pastes slathered on them ... then we got to play!
So much fun and such great vibrant colors!
I brought with me a 12 x 12 inch canvas to play with and to add a bit of color so that that scary white canvas wasn't staring at me.
Here's Christy Nimeh, showing me her canvas she worked on ... how come hers looks all finished and pretty?
Mine, not so! After I came home that day, I couldn't stop playing and painting ... not sure where this will end up, but for not, this is what it looks like.
And here's JenEve ... posing just a little once the camera was aimed at her! Too cute.
And Jenny, forever the art collector ... purchasing one of Chris Cozen's beautiful works!
Thanks for a great morning Jenny and Chris!
