The Artist's Notebook
Have you ever asked yourself
How did I make this colour, again? I forgot how I did it!
I've asked myself the very same question so many times until I finally came up with a very practical notebook designed to help you remember all your colour recipes.
This notebook will save you time and prevent you from wasting paint by giving you one place to :
note the colours you used for each of your art works,
keep all your colour recipes together so you never forget,
keep all your inspirational photos and images in one place for fast and easy reference.
Stop wasting time and paint trying to remember how to recreate a colour.
This notebook helps you free your mind of these details so you can concentrate on your creativity.
Excellent teacher, very attentive, mastering all the techniques of her art, Angel transmits her passion to her students with a lot of energy, talent, patience, and a note of humor.
I learned a lot during the two courses that I was able to follow with her, and really enjoyed working with the talented artists who are her students. Thank you Angel and probably see you very soon. Randa P
Angel is aptly named: she is an angel to guide us in our development in painting and she has wings because she can fly over several styles and media. There are no obstacles to her flexibility to adapt to our needs as painters, from beginners to experts. The lessons are relaxed and the atmosphere is stimulating and warm. Angel knows how to put us at ease and give us confidence in our abilities with a good dose of humour.
I have known Angel for over ten years and I always enjoy coming back after temporary absences. I have made several paintings over the years and I am currently interested in semi-abstract painting and the use of spatulas. At the dawn of my retirement, it is a nourishing and enriching activity where the exchange with other painters is done with pleasure and respect.
THANK YOU Angel.
Very interesting courses with good concepts and tips to arrive at a very satisfactory end product. After being inactive for a long time, Angel knew how to instill in me the taste, the interest and the confidence in me to take up new creative challenges. Her workshop is also a place of exchange, inspiration and renewal, where there is a beautiful energy. I am very satisfied and happy to have joined this painting school and I highly recommend it. My goal of being able to integrate this creative activity into my everyday life has been achieved. Thank Angel !
Angel is a very good painting teacher. She is patient, teaches well and is particularly good at advising you on mixing colors. Take a class with her, you won't regret it!
