A Journey Into Abstraction

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on May 25, 2021 by Lisa Mills

I just finished three courses through Stanford University’s Continuing Education Program to further develop my art skills. I truly believe in the value of continuing education – one should never settle for “good enough” – there’s always room for improvement.

These works are a culmination of the three courses: Developing a Creative Practice; Abstract Drawing; and Layers, all taught by the wonderful Trevor Tubelle (Instagram – @trevortubelle). These all started with watercolor, then multiple layers of wet and dry media piled on – colored pencil, oil pastel, Pan Pastel, wax pastel, acrylic paint, mica and metallic leaf. They are beyond fun to create and the end result is extremely satisfying for me – and hopefully, you too. These are available on my website: lisamillsfineart.com
