Doreen will need to know in advance who will be attending the Letter Plate Workshop so she can have your one letter ready for you to paint at the workshop. There will be a sign up sheet at the January and February meetings so you denote your letter when you sign up. Participants will just need to bring their normal supplies. Doreen will have some supplies for everyone that they can use for the day that won't be in their normal supplies. You will need to bring pen oil, nibbed pen and staff, plus their regular medium and any color paints you want to use. It's best to have a light, medium, and dark value of the same color for the effects as shown on the letter A plate and the letter D plate above. More information as the date approaches! Plan on signing up at the meeting. And don't forget to know what one letter you want to paint. North East TX Porcelain Art Club.
