MAS Workshop

12"x16"  Acrylic on paper
I recently attended a Molesey Art Society workshop run by Audrey Cove. We were given a black and white photo of a painting by S. J. Peploe and spent a couple of hours painting our own interpretation in acrylic. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, painting in a much looser style than normally.

These pictures were in response to the   A Day Not Wasted October challenge. I first did a gel pen sketch, then a pastel pencil portrait on UArt 800 pastel card. The portrait is 7" square.

24" x 16"
I painted this beautiful autumn bouquet in gouache on an acrylic ground. I have discovered that if I spray fixative between the layers I don't have a problem with the paint lifting when I add more colour.
