Your chance to study oils with a master painter

She will probably smack me when she sees this headline, but I did want to focus your attention on the following online event.  EBSQ’s own Harlan will be teaching not one but TWO new online classes on oils via CraftEdu.com starting tomorrow.  From their website:

Tomorrow we will offer 2 classes by Jeanne Harlan-Marriott. Her 3 part
Introduction to Oil Painting is a foundation class that will get you
started on your voyage to understanding the nature of the medium, the
tools and materials you should have and how oil paint works! Her 4 part
Trillium class will take you further as you complete your own painting.
Learn about light, color, shadow, composition and mixing your own
palette. These two classes are a must for anyone who has wanted to
paint like the Old Masters.

So, sign up between the hours of 12 Noon MT tomorrow and 12 Noon MT Thursday and take advantage of special
(25% reduced) introductory pricing.

Visit CraftEdu Community at: http://community.craftedu.com/

So–if you’re hankering to bone up your oil skills, here’s your chance! For further inspiration, please be sure to visit Harlan’s portfolio at EBSQ. There’s a lot of pieces that look like photos. Don’t let the hyper-realism fool you; those are paintings, my friend!

Team EBSQ-Etsy Featured Friday: Harlan

Team EBSQ-Etsy is proud to present this weeks Featured Friday store Harlan’s :

Kris Jean: Take a private tour of “The Intimate Forest”, with pause and awe for nature as only Harlan can present it. Her amazing giclees are professionally printed to the highest standards, and worth every penny.  With her needle felted creatures, whether it’s a commissioned cat portrait, or a chicken pin cushion – she brings a wonderful sense of whimsy, a beautiful aesthetic,  and skill that are so delightful – you feel you must own one of her pieces.

Heide Hibbard: I am a proud owner of two of  Harlan’s giclees and one of her Prittens – felted kittens. I noticed that she has a sale going on her giclees right now and the prices are fantastic. Harlan is a complete perfectionist when it comes to her specifications for printing of her giclees so you can be sure each one is flawless. If I could, I would like to have about 50 of Jeanne’s Prittens; they are so precious, soft and one-of-a-kind. I hope to eventually get a custom pritten of our barn cat because I know she will labor to make sure that she has captured every detail.

Art Seen: Inspiration

Inspiration by Lea Campbell

In our major reimagining of the EBSQ forums that took place late last month, we’ve created an entire new section focused on Art and Process. One of my personal favourite new sections is Inspiration 101 hosted by EBSQ’ers Harlan and Diana Maus. We’d love to hear: what inspires you?
