Experimenting with Shaving Cream and Plein Air Painting

 
Hello Friends,  We had a great day outside with Mother Nature.  Mary Anne showed us how to use Shaving Cream with inks and acrylics to get some beautiful stains on your papers before you start painting.

 
Here is a butchers tray with piles of the shaving cream and colors added on top.  Swirled with a spaghetti tool.

 
Then you lay your paper on it and then you blot with news papers or more art papers.  Blot until all the cream is gone.
Should have some interesting mixed media work to show you soon.

 
Bonnie, Linda & Myself just stuck with the plein air painting thing.  'Cuz it was a beautiful day!

 
Linda will finish hers at home.
 
It was a good day with friends and fun.
 
We are going to DT Roanoke for the First Friday Art Walk tomorrow evening, May 1st.
Hope you can be there too.
 
Happy Trails
