Between Shadow & Light

I recently have taken an online class with Ivy Newport – “Between Shadow & Light” .

I have learnt so much from this class, who knew my left hand was so talented. The techniques in this class are quite freeing. I would recommend this class to anyone who what like to find their inner artist. I can’t express enough how much I have enjoyed it. It really is a wonderful journey delving between the shadow and light.

This one was created with water soluable graphite, Charcoal, Pastels, Black and White Paint and clear gesso. So so much fun!

This is the same image that I have coloured with an App on my IPhone called “Color Effects”

This one was my first attempt at Ivy’s Technique. I love how different everyone’s turned out who all started with the same reference photo.
It really showcased how it can embrace everyone’s different styles 🙂
