Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting with Calvin Lang

My Dad and I did some plein air painting in Laguna Beach
after watching a bit of demo by artist Calvin Lang.
There were quite a few plein air painters practicing their craft, and
so it was a lovely day in paradise~*

Cyanotype Workshop with Danielle McCullough ~*

I brought an artist friend and attended a Cyanotype Workshop with Danielle McCullough, sponsored by the Long Beach Arts Council.  We loved it!  Ms. McCullough shared her method of cyanotype print making, a photographic printing process using UV light that is credited as the method for the first female photograher, Anna Atkins.  We experimented with prints on watercolor paper as well as fabric panels!







Many thanks to Danielle McCullough and the Long Beach Arts Council!~*
