In this fast-paced workshop you will learn how to mix customized
colors inspired by your favorite landscape, explore what nature can
teach us about adding depth to our work, practice troubleshooting
to get gorgeous color combinations, and collage a mini landscape
brooch to take home.
Start by instinctively mixing colors to match your landscape using the Maggio Mixing Map
as a guide. Once you have the colors you need, Maggie will demonstrate her advanced
Watercolor techniques for creating color-washed sheets to mimic Sky, Mountains, Trees,
Fields and Water. Have fun exploring new ways to combine a variety of standard polymer
techniques with the Watercolor technique as you make your personal collection of sheets.
Play with tearing and laying out your sheets until you have an abstract collage that feels
inspired by your landscape and then mount your collage in a 2” (50 mm) brass frame
without using glue.
