Acrylics and Collage Class
Friday was our new class - Acrylics and Collage with Claire Warner.
Our artists bought photos, images, sand and shells with them to help create their pictures.
They worked on a canvas board, attached to cardboard.
Claire demonstrated the various techniques needed.
It may be quite hard to see on the blog but some of the pictures do have real photos and magazine/paper cuttings glued on to them.
The shells below were attached to texture paste to build up around them.
Everyone really enjoyed using the acrylics in this way, mixing the paints to match the colours of their images to help blend them together.
If you look closely at the birds below you will see they started as torn out pieces from a newspaper
Below is an unfinished painting, we thought it was a great idea, to incorporate the artist's grandchildren into a painting. Hopefully we will get to see the finished painting.
Below is my favourite beach shot from last week's trip to the 'Wild' South West!
Not the best week of weather to go, but a great excuse to sit by the fires on lovely sofas!
