Enhance your painting with the addition of beautiful hand-dyed papers! Create unique landscapes, portraits, and abstract works with techniques that will change the way you see your paintings. We will start by dyeing our papers in our chosen color schemes, creating hues that transition from dark to light or bright to dull, and even our own patterned papers! Then we will add these to our paintings to create more space, incorporate subtle color usage, and add textures.
