Acrylic Friday: Week Three

Rain, rain, rain today…. so sadly, there was no sunny, garden coffee-break for the hard-working Friday group….

In week three there’s quite a bit of to-ing and fro-ing with paint and ink as the paintings progress and the depth increases with the layers….

The amount of work put in in terms of patiently adding paint layers; breaking down the shapes and adding the darks and lights, plus little touches of colour here and there, is shown beautifully in this fabulous painting-in-progress of a rusty old door…

Whilst the paint was drying on this charming painting, the artist got right down to starting another one….

which was quickly blocked in and inked….

This splendid butterfly painting is nearing completion….

and work continues on the lovely red door painting.

The bicycle painting is really starting to take shape – it’s owner doing really well, having started the workshop only in week two….

Jackie, once again, was on her feet all morning – helping everyone out with the development of their paintings…

Having taken the olive tree out of my pot picture (do I never learn!) I’m of course struggling a bit with the areas where the tree should be!

Well done everyone – and thanks to Jackie for her hard work again today.

  1. Concerning your missing tree, Gill, I came across this from Caspar David Friedrich this morning: “The artist should paint not only what he sees before him, but also what he sees within him. If, however, he sees nothing within him, then he should also refrain from painting that which he sees before him.” I hope this might help you!
