Week 5 from Lifebook 2016 is taught by Pauline Agnew. She named it A Vessel Full of Tenderness.
I think this is one of my favorite lessons. As the picture shows, we did a bowl of flowers using collage and mixed media techniques.
If I recall this correctly, we made the background using many layers of collage and paint and handwriting. Then we drew a loose image of the bowl, and painted the flowers and greenery on top of the bowl.
We did not paint the bowl at all, but rather, we used white acrylic paint to go AROUND the bowl, allowing the underlying collage to show through.
I used a floral stencil at the bottom to make a couple of flowers lying “on the table”.
