About Jeannie’s workshops:

Students will be guided in exploring unique techniques used to create translucent imagery.

  • Learn how to use a limited palette of only 3 transparent staining hues to achieve beautiful rainbow-colored layers of color.
  • By mingling color on dry paper, and on wet, you will create amazing mixes of color through glazing.
  • See and learn how to lift and move color while paper is still damp making beautiful fresh textures and surface illusions.
  • This process takes some patience, practice and understanding, but the visual effects reveal an unusual depth of color which is well worth the effort.

Jeannie demonstrates each day.
Each student will start with practice and exploration of techniques. 
Beginners may work with Jeannie’s images, while more advanced students may choose the subject matter of their own choice.
