Here, Kelli was explaining all the different textures that were used in her "Tide Pool" pieces. There's gesso, sand, gel, glass beads and crackle medium. They had already prepared textured canvas boards for us (since it takes so long for the texture mediums to dry) - and we got to pick out an 8"x 8" and a 5" square. Then they took us through the painting - adding textures with tissue and other things, as well as glueing on papers, glass, beads, shells -- almost anything that you can think of! They helped us keep on track and simplify - and I must tell you - everyone had pieces that were simply gorgeous! Can't wait to do more! Yes, of course, I bought more stuff!
