Cheng-Khee Chee Workshop ~ Day 4 ~ Crinkle Paper Technique ~ Slide Show

"Tree in Fredericksburg"
Mounted Masa paper
14" x 20"

Day four of the Cheng-Khee Chee workshop found us wetting and crinkling masa paper and aiming for "exciting texture" in our painting. Texas has many different trees to choose from but if you've followed this blog very long you won't remember very many "tree forms" found in my work. After we crinkled the paper then the paint was applied and yes, he showed us exactly how to "crinkle". Mine was nearing disaster status when I remembered I'd thrown in some white gouache in a fit of last minute packing and I was able to reclaim some of the rock and flower shapes. The tree still needs some hot licks and my signature.

Hi, Nick..You've found me out. I love the dynamics of "group painting" and seeing how others paint. I thought I was finished for the year but have added 3 others. I've joined LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter recently. Want to be my friend?
