TRAINING WHEELS   Fluid Acrylics on Yupo
12x17" Collected

Fairborn Art Association hosted my Yupo workshop this past week near Dayton, Ohio.  This painting was the first demo I did showing how to use Fluid Acrylics on Yupo with my Tape Batik process.  It's called Tape Batik because the way the paint leaks under the edges of the tape on the Yupo looks a lot like a silk Batik.  The second photo below shows the first layer of tape covered by the first layer of paint.  It's an intense process with considerable planning involved, but so worth it for the results.

Their art association was so positive, very creative, and we had an extremely productive week!  Thanks so much for asking me to teach there.  They are an excellent organization!

My next workshop is in The Villages, Florida, in January, then in February, Calgary, Canada.  Join us if you can.  See the right hand sidebar for more info.
