Baseball Nut Icecream Bubbles

On Friday July 6, 2012, 10 – 11.30am, I will be holding a bubble painting workshop at the Unley Town Hall, Oxford Terrace, Unley, South Australia. I’ll be there in my daggy painting clothes with a bunch of 7-13 year olds exploring bubble printing and the art we can create from it. It is part of a school holiday program, but for those of you don’t have children in that age bracket, you are surely welcome as spectators. Drop in and say hi 😀

It is nothing snazzy, but it does demonstrate a part of the procedure I had difficulty explaining in the tutorial.

Dream

Dream, Acrylic, pen and gel pen on illustration board, approx. 200mm x 250mm. The experiment from the previous post? Now a completed painting. The scan seems to have obliterated most of the stars.
