Welcome to Week 23 of my Tuesday’s Tutorials blog series, where each week I feature art tutorials created by different artists from around the world. This series has grown from a year-long blog series called Tuesday’s Texture. You can find out more about the transition from one series to the next in this post.
This rich mixed media canvas comes from Astrid Maclean who lives in Edinburgh, Scotland. Astrid was also featured in June of 2014 as part of my earlier series (Tuesday’s Texture, Week 2 – Featuring Astrid Maclean.)
I love the rich texture and colors on this canvas, especially within the heart itself. Be sure to visit Astrid’s beautiful blog to see the full tutorial.
I hope you enjoy this weekly feature and that it introduces you to techniques that inspire you, and to artists who may not yet be on your radar.
Before you go, I want to give a shout-out to my friend Jessica Sporn who is now teaching online (as well as in-person) classes. Jessica is a very talented artist and teacher. I’ve had the pleasure of taking her classes live in-person at Art Is You, as well as online, and I’ve learned so much about painting that I can’t recommend her classes highly enough! Here’s a link for more info.
