Collaborative Painting with Friends

On a Friday a couple of weeks back, I had three friends come to my studio to play, have lunch and catch up.  Ann Crane, Jill Rosoff and Melanie McFarland.   Ann is a chef, Jill is a watercolorist, and Mel is an art quilter.  We started with a primed canvas, and acrylic paint.

The progression.  We also changed places ever 5-10 minutes, so that our own artistic styles could be all over the canvas, and not just in one place

It's getting more detailed and fun!

and after lunch, I cut it up into four sections and each person got to select the one they wanted.  It was so much fun!  Leslie Tucker Jenison and I are teaching this class at the International Quilt Festival in Houston - this fall "Painting with a Twist & Shout."

  3. Another question Jamie: Did each artist carry their paint as they moved around and use the same colors and similar designs as they moved around for continuity?
