Today, a second, small group of painters started the Friday version of the four week acrylics workshop, led by Jackie Sherwood ….
This group started off the morning with a little colour mixing exercise…
then, following Jackie’s ‘blocking-in’ demonstration – below, started work on their paintings….
Here’s Jackie’s stage one – above, and stage two, with more breaking up of the shapes & colours – below…
Here’s the students fabulous work at the end of the first morning….
They have all blocked in…..
and broken up….
and started on drawing into the paintings with waterproof ink….
Four very presentable starts I think….all this and they managed to do the colour mixing…..so no homework for them this week!
I decided to continue with the boaty painting I started in the Wednesday group – so have now got to the inking stage!
and I thought maybe it was time I looked at the other two I started in December, so have done a bit more to one of those!….
Coffee break today was taken inside the studio, due to a sudden and dramatic downpour just as I was carrying the biscuits over the road!
