Last night I shared Cheryl Moote’s “Tropical Garden” ideas with Judy and Julie. These two love everything that has color so our meetings are usually ZIA-based projects. In order to finish in our two hour time frame, we created our gardens on 5×7 paper. Once they were happy with their designs, we used Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils to add the color. These definitely turned out really nice, and look how different the two are, even though we used the same basic patterns.
I’ve had a lot of fun playing with Cheryl’s ideas, as well. I sure wish she lived somewhere close as I would love to have a class from her. Guess I’ll just have to make it to a Tangle U and hope she’s one of the instructors!
I have another Tropical Garden class scheduled on June 11th at Icarus Creative Arts Studio at the Bernardo Winery. Join me if you’d like to see how these pieces are made – it really is a lot of fun!
