Free Tutorials Page on my arts website Outlook8studio. Experimenting with Paint & Shellac.
Experimentation & New Free Tutorials Page. My blog updates have been scarce lately, as, Ive been studying a couple of arts business and creative courses. This week I created a new “Free Tutorials” on my Outlook8studio website , where I share some of my favorite, creative ideas and things to do.
I’ve also, been experimenting with shellac and acrylic paints in the studio
and plan to create some textile and sculpture pieces too.
My favourite thing to make on Free Tutorials is my large studio easel. I created it when I built my studio in 2000. I wanted something big, so I could work on many paintings at once. It’s a bit slap happy, (I’m no carpenter) but, works perfectly for me.
“Taking Stock” allows me to see what’s happening in my life and where I’m at in this moment. Its also lots of fun!
