Saturday was a Cocoa Painting Workshop. It was an all day class which, literally breaks your back b/c you are hunched over painting. :p
You learn to use cocoa powder and cocoa butter to paint monocramatic illustrations. As well, you learn to use a combination of cocoa butter and powdered colours to create colour colour illustrations.
Because of my art background, I approached the coloured illustrations as I would watercolours. Both with the colours and the straight cocoa, you work in layers, slowly adding more light layers to your work. The result is pretty neat.
