Learn how to get that highly textured surface using common and uncommon materials! A highly textured surface evokes the elements of earth and appeals to our sense of touch. Let’s explore new ways to create textured surfaces and interact with them with sepia washes, scumbling, sanding and more!

Janet Trenchard, Artist’s Statement
I work in an abstract contemporary style, and often work large for the physicality of it, and the sense of expansion.
I enjoy texture for the sense of touch, implied or real. My work is inspired by exploration and the interaction with materials.
What’s coming through in my current work expresses the earth, geology, geography, water.
