We had a surprise visitor at our art class this week and an artist had come to talk about using different media and textures in our art. She had various examples to show us of her own work and that of other artists, she also had some supplies such as rock salt, tissue, corrugated card, bubble wrap, cling film, cut up credit cards, modelling paste and much more that we could use to experiment with.
I only did a couple of small pieces, which were quite basic, as I wanted to continue working on the bird painting I had started last week, but I have come away with some ideas and some handouts of different examples.
I love the colours in this.
This looked better before it was dry - interesting that there is a clear dividing line in a couple of places as I had thought I had completely wet the paper all over first, but obviously not.
Now on to my bird painting
This is as far as I had got the week before.
This is how it is coming along.
Looking out into the garden this wet afternoon...
Mr Blackbird is busy. Loving the water droplets on his back.
