Definition: Aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.
The fleeting moments of knowledge in which we discover our existence are facts that can be committed to memory. We can enlarge this aggregate memory and refashion it as we go through a lifetime. By saving these memories on paper and reconstructing the images of our lives. We see the art of our lives unfolding before us.
Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams. I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.
I have some fun fun news to share with you.PRIMA has selected 12 artists to represent Prima Brand as a Prima Ambassadors. We will be your local connections to PRIMA Brand in local craft stores. Teaching and sharing the fun of creating with Prima Products. I am looking forward to being a Prima Ambassador and spreading the Love teaching in Utah at local craft stores. More information to follow soon. Hope you will come out to see me in action in January. xx Warmly- Sarinda P.S. I am doing the CRAZY Bunny dance for sure... eeek.
1: Mix an orange color that you like in the pallet add a large circle a bit
left of center of your Yupo Paper. Notice how the watercolor will pool in
areas. This is the magic of this paper.
2: Mix a green yellow. I added just a touch of grey to mute the brightness. I
also will use a scrap of Yupo paper to test the color on.
3: Add a grey blue to the center of the circle and to the right of the circle.
Note that I leave some white space on my paintings. I feel this adds interest
and breathing room to a watercolor. Sometimes I can over work an area and this
is how I keep myself from doing so.
4: Add a muted purple to the far left side. Then I was able to add more color
to the center of the circle. Just play and have fun. I love how the paper keeps
the brush strokes and pools in other places.
5: I added some quick graphite markings to the circle and dots.
6: Lay the stencil on top of the dry watercolor and add Pan Pastels in grey and
brown to the sides of the circle. I also took my Pitt pen in "S" to
darken just some of the lines and dots. Spray Workable Fixative and let dry.
This helps prevent the Pan Pastels from smudging.
7: Frame and enjoy-!!
These would make great gifts for the Holidays and do not take much time to
