Creative Jump Start 2016 with Birgit Koopsen

January is always a busy month with summer in Australia, lots to do like watching the Australian Open tennis in Melbourne, Australia Day festivities, gardening outside, catching up with friends etc.
I managed to find time to finish Jean-Michel Basquiat lesson with Birgit Koopsen in the CJS 2016 workshop www.nathaliesstudio.com
I used a photo from my good friend as inspiration.  I will give her the original and print a copy for myself.  I love how it turned out.
I love how Birgit used bright colours and black pen to draw her portrait. So thankful that Birgit was able to show this lovely technique. Thank you Birgit!

I used Jo Sonja’s acrylic paints, Sharpie black and white pens and some gold and pinkish shimmer for a bit of sparkle.

  1. Awesome art piece! I have to know what white pen you are using? I like the thicker line. Is that a sharpie? I have used gel pens with quite a bit of success, but the problem is that the lines are so thin and hard to see.
