I've been traveling, so I'm going to keep it short this week. In fact, I had the absolute pleasure of spending some time in Portland and rural Oregon this summer. The beauty was beyond imagination, and I was very lucky to miss the record high heat wave to experience almost perfect temperatures. I'm still processing all the cool stuff I did and saw while there. More summer chronicled art coming soon!
Spot On Artist- Peggy Dean
Our Spot-On Artist this week is Peggy Dean, from Portland, Oregon. Since I was just there, like yesterday, I thought I would feature Peggy in honor of the super cool city she hails from. I've been following her for quite a while on Skillshare.com. Her hand calligraphy classes are all the rage, and I love that she incorporates her gorgeous watercolor paintings. She has even created a class on how to design your own font on the iPad! That one is on the top of my list.
She has an Instagram following of over 116K, where she posts little mini tutorials and lots of fun projects. The big news is that Peggy was just featured on the Today Show! Doesn't get much bigger than that. Check out all of Peggy's cool work on her website, ThePigeonLetters.com.
New Summer Themed Art Class
I've been working on an all new Skillshare class with a summer theme. I'll be using my new Winsor & Newton watercolor paints and a Pentel water brush on Canson paper. This particular painting features some artistry special effects to create a pearl essence finish. No other spoilers just yet so you'll have to hang in for the published date. You'll be the first to know!
