MULTIMEDIA ARTBOARD PAINTING


Found a small and larger piece of Multimedia Artboard I purchased a long time ago.  The paint sits on top of the thin board, which makes for some interesting textures and open spaces.
  



Bluejay says, What?









For the next few days, I'm going to be participating in a Sketchbook Revival free online course - lots of videos to watch and lots of good ideas on how to revive your sketchbook.  It's hosted by Karen Abend and includes Danny Gregory, Ria Sharon, Shelly Klammer and Val Webb (I've taken 2 online courses from Val and she's great) - and lots of other artists who take us on a journey through their sketchbooks, their processes, and what they want us to do = jump in and have fun.  I've watched 3 episodes so far and am enjoying it.  I'll share some of my sketchbook entries later...

Of course, that doesn't mean I won't be painting others things, just that I'm including some sketchbook drawing/painting/collage into my usual practice.

Rhonda - your blue jay is too cute. Never have used multi-media board before. It certainly does look like it would be fun to work on. Will be checking out that Sketchbook link. Just may be joining in as well. Hugs!

Thanks, Sadami :) There are a good variety of artists in the Sketchbook Revival course - enough to find a good one or two :)

Thanks, Chris. Do join in - it's free, you can work at your own pace, and it's fun.

Thanks, Debbie, join in!! I didn't join in the Facebook group, but you can still do that (I think) or participate at your own speed in your own space (as I do). The multimedia artboard is stiff/hard but thin (it will break if you aren't careful with it - I've had that happen to an older one in the past), but it creates some interesting textures because of the way it repels the paint in areas - sort of like painting on Yupo but not as slick and not as able to lift back to white.
