Join me to explore tiny worlds through the macro lens and create beautiful pieces of art using pen, ink and watercolor paint. We will observe natural found objects though the macro lens of our camera or iphone/ipad (and magnifying glass) and be inspired by photographs focusing mostly on sea life, flowers, leaves, cells and more! This class also includes a HUGE library of downloadable macro and microscopic images. Each piece of art will be unique, some abstract, some full of natural patterns and many will form beautiful mandala designs that are also found in nature. There is so much beauty in these tiny worlds and you will leave this class with endless inspiration and look at the natural world with a new eye for details. You will find yourself seeking out more tiny worlds that are around you everyday. In class, we will be creating at least 15 pieces of mini art (around 7 or 8 inch squares) inspired by the beauty of nature as seen through a macro lens/magnifying class. Recording patterns in nature, cells, shapes and colors, our artwork will take on a beautiful unique look and feel. Class includes:
- Video, text and high resolution image based lessons
- 25+ video tutorials
- Guidance and inspiration from Louise on capturing the beauty of nature through the macro lens
- A friendly community to share images with
BONUS: There will also be a HUGE vault of macro images for you to download and use as inspiration and reference so even if you are unable to capture your own images, you can select from my collection.
