This is part 2 of my circle study from Helga's blog...you had to find images from magazines that appealed to you ..quickly make a collage and add part of your circles from week one...then add more circles or dots to make a cohesive collage.

Helga posted a new art lesson/challenge on her site and the challenge was D O T S! I started on watercolor paper and used mostly watercolor crayon for the color. I kept building the color layers until I got the intensity I wanted. I then added graphite pencil, some paint and gel pens to make it POP. As you can see I love to use a lot of color and layering in my art. This was a fun lesson. Check it out here:

Took a GREAT class
with Lisa Kaus on
Sunday. She was an
excellent teacher! All
the color was added by
watercolor crayons and
graphite pencil...then we added any embellishments we wanted. Every edge is
painted on...even the bottom. The crown like topper I found at an estate sale..I think it is an old lightbulb surround. We also added collage elements.
