Mindy Lacefield

Hi! My name is Mindy and I am inspired and paint from the nostalgia of my childhood. Channeling my inner 8 year old. Painting my dreams into reality. I teach. I learn. I play. I make mistakes. I celebrate those mistakes because they become happy, magical moments from the Divine.

About this course

I am so excited to offer this class! It is all about taking your watercolors further through layering with gesso, inks, chalk pastels, shimmer paint, and paint pen. This expressive class will help you open up to the possibilities that come with watercoloring. I love to watercolor but I sometimes think something is missing. I want more layers and juicy textures and splatters. Let's expand those feelings and let go of the "right way" for watercolor. We will celebrate the delicious organic and flowing shape of the dress. We will not worry about perfection. I take you through the drawing phase all the way to then end talking you through each tiny movement.
