{Bloghop} Art of Wild Abandonment on line class

Pin It
 WELCOME blog hoppers and friends!  I'm very excited to be participating in a blog hop with some very talented ladies that I've met through an on line class I have taken called The Art of Wild Abandonment.


 Below are a couple of the pieces I created in the class.  So many of us stepped outside our comfort zone and sketched used watercolors and tried mixed media for the first time.




This is my favorite water brush


These lovelies {roofing brushes} are for a project that I have not yet completed! 
I will post about it when I finish!


Here is my Art Caddy with paints and goodies inside, the full post is here

Here are two pieces, a block and a page in my art journal that are still works in progress.

Hey Chrissy! Your post is great, love your super pictures you have a great eye! Admire how everything is so neat and in it's place...I'm soooo bad like that you wouldn't believe!! The waterflow brushes are perfect for watercoloring and I do find them so much easier to work with, the picture with your radishes and the brush on top takes me to a happy place! Gorgeous colors you have used there :) Thankyou so much for sharing and all your help on the facebook group, you've been a STAR x
