July Week 3 Prompt – Down by the Sea
When we scheduled this prompt we had no idea it would fall just a few days before my departure to Hawaii, but it just seems so appropriate don’t you think. This week Peta created a gorgeous undersea page and I paid homage to Hawaii with my very loosely interpreted plumeria flowers (I need more practice lol). In this week’s lesson, Gina teaches one of her famous seascapes in two mediums, acrylic and watercolor, with some great tips on color mixing from a limited color palette. Enjoy!

Follow Your Dream #lovesummerart Mixed Media Painting

Ok, I’m not sure how I found the time to make two videos this week for the #lovesummerart project…but I did! I hope y’all enjoy this video of a mixed media painting I did on Strathmore Mixed Media Board. I plan to frame and hang it somewhere around the new place in Hawaii. I thought it was quite appropriate. If you haven’t already, head on over to YouTube and enter #lovesummerart in the search bar to find tons of amazing summer themed arts and crafts videos. This is the biggest YouTube collaboration of artists I’ve ever heard of, so don’t miss out on all the great content we’ve been making for you.

You will find a vast assortment of videos from many different artists and crafters from all over YouTube who have come together to provide you, our valued viewers, a huge amount of amazing video content in many different styles and types of art.
