My Second Art Class

I went to my second art class today and had a chance to venture into painting with acrylic paints.  I haven't really painted since I left school and I have never used acrylics before so this was indeed a learning experience. I have certainly never tried painting scenery before!   I feel I 'messed' it up a bit, but will leave well enough alone now and hopefully have learnt something for next time.

Of course it looks better from a distance....a long distance!

We also prepared a board for some textured painting that we will start next week.  This involved painting PVA glue over the board and then layering with tissue paper.


  1. That looks like the photo you used to have as a header - is it somewhere in New Zealand? It all sounds fun and interesting. Can't wait to see what you will do on the textured boards next time!

    1. Yeah, you can see a resemblance so that is something! I think it used to be my header and it is in the previous post.

  2. Oh Wow I think you learned alot from this class- wonderful painting and I cant wait to see what you do with the prepared canvas - I think it look so Cool as is!

  3. If I'd 'messed up' like that I'd be bloomin' delighted as it is fab.

  4. You did good!!! Keep on with your art you definitely have a talent.
